On October 17th Valley City State University’s football team traveled to Aberdeen, South Dakota to play against Presentation college. Vikings ended up taking the big win 24-14, but after the game one of the coaches awarded a player with the game ball.
The game ball was given to Logan Olesen who is a junior, and started for the first time on the field that day. Olesen’s position is usually a defensive lineman but a plot twist for him that day of starting was that he had to play the opposite position he is used too, offensive lineman.
“It was a great experience to get out there and show everyone what I can do, and to bring home the win was just icing on the cake.” – Olesen
Everyone on the team and coaches congratulated Olesen for the hard work he put in the game, and for taking leadership after being thrown in to play and start a position he isn’t used to.
Olesen was very shocked to have received the game ball because he mentioned that it is rare for coaches to hand one out after a game to a team player. So congratulations Logan Olesen for receiving the winning game ball and congratulations to the vikings for the big win!
