Regardless of who you root for on the field after watching this video of what Minnesota Vikings Tight End Kyle Rudolph does off the field will make you a fan.

From the Minnesota Vikings YouTube description of the above video:

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph is the Vikings nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, which recognizes players who exhibit on-the-field excellence and also those who impact lives off the field to leave a positive legacy in their communities.

I have never been the kind of person who roots for a team, I like rooting for players and stories.

I like to hear the story of where people cam from and how they got to where they are pursuing a dream few can fulfill.

When I see someone who accomplishes a personal dream and impacts people along the way I find it impossible not to cheer for these type of players.

After watching the above video on Kyle Rudolph, I will add him to the list of people I am pulling for.

There is always a bigger game being played off the field, and it's one Rudolph appears to be a hall of famer at.
