This weekend, Otter fan Magnus Burud celebrated his 5th birthday with a football-themed party. Magnus’s mom, Amanda, thought the kids would enjoy playing some backyard football with some of their Otter heroes and mentioned it to Jake Brimhall’s mom.
Jake reached out to fellow players Marshall King and Harrison Christensen. The three decided to make Magnus’s birthday one to remember. They showed up at 2:00 and played football with them for about 45 minutes, then had cupcakes. The kids thought it was so cool! The 3 teens let the little ones score touchdowns and kick field goals and even let the little ones tackle them.
Despite the Otters’ athletic ability, rumor has it the 5-year-olds won 21-17. (This does NOT affect their official State High School League standings or record.)
