Vikings' man in the community gets a promotion

The Vikings announced that Brad Madson has been promoted to Executive Director of Community Relations/Youth Football.

After joining the team in 1992, Madson has worked in the community relations department the past 11 years, the last eight as community relations director.

During that time, Madson has developed the Vikings' community relations department into one of the NFL's strongest. He implemented Community Tuesday, which has been adopted league-wide, and he helped former receiver Cris Carter earn the NFL's Man of the Year award.

Vikings owner/ president Mark Wilf recognized Madson's contributions and added, "Brad will also lead the effort to expand our outreach program on youth football, a top priority program for the NFL and the Vikings."

Madson was flattered by the promotion.

"How lucky am I to be in a position to help our players put smiles on the faces of children or lighten the day of a veteran?" he said. "To be in this position, I’m truly blessed."
