The Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation will be holding its annual awards dinner Sunday, April 22. This year's event will have numerous ties to the Golden Gopher Football program.
Legendary Golden Gopher great Bobby Bell - a college and professional football Hall of Famer - will give the keynote address. Bell was one of the most feared defensive players of all time and played on Minnesota's 1960 National Championship team.
In addition to Bell's involvement, current Gophers head coach Jerry Kill will be on hand to present the Murray Warmath Legendary Team Award. The award is named after Warmath, the former Minnesota head coach who led the Gophers to their last Big Ten and National Championships. The award will go to Minnesota's 1960 National Championship team and numerous members of that squad will be in attendance.
The Fifth Annual Honoring Legends, Inspiring Leaders Awards Dinner will take place at the James B. Woulfe Alumni Hall in the Anderson Student Center at the University of St. Thomas. The event is open to the public, but seating is limited. To purchase tickets, visit the NFF Minnesota Chapter website.
