Vikings HC Kevin O’Connell surprises young fan at Kenny Chesney concert

Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell is apparently a fan of Kenny Chesney.

The country superstar was at US Bank Stadium on Saturday night to perform on his Sun Goes Down Tour. During the show, Chesney invited O’Connell on stage. It is not unusual for music acts to bring local celebrities on stage and they are happy to do so alongside those playing in the building where the concert takes place.

Not only did O’Connell take the stage with a helmet, he signed it and gave it to a young fan.

Rookie Minicamp is a week away and O’Connell finds a way to get real while making a young fan’s day. He’ll have quite a story when he comes to school on Monday.
