The Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation has selected Rushford-Peterson’s Noah Carlson as one of eight High School Scholar Athletes. He has been invited to the 10th annual Minnesota Football Honors awards event, held Sunday May 7, at U.S. Bank Stadium. Presented by the Vikings, it is the largest football awards gathering in Minnesota. The state’s top football professionals, legends, stand-outs, and scholar-athletes are honored. College and professional football Hall of Fame inductees are scheduled to attend. Among the awards presented (in addition to the Minnesota HS Scholar Athlete) are the Viking Team Awards, the Bobby Bell College Impact Player Award, and the Bud Grant Distinguished Minnesotan Award. Carlson is the second Rushford-linked athlete in the past three years to earn such an honor. Gunnar Grimsrud, son of former Rushford graduate Dana Grimsrud, was a 2015 High Scholar athlete (out of Rochester-Mayo). On a different front, R-P’s Brianna Koop was named Class A basketball All-State Honorable Mention. The senior set the Trojan girls scoring mark at over 2,000 points while leading the TRC in scoring and rebounding.
