The biography of a Minnesota Vikings superstar! Adam Thielen grew up in rural Minnesota, cheering on the state's beloved purple and gold football team. He dreamed of one day playing in the NFL, but no one could imagine the path that awaited him. Adam experienced rejection and disappointment, but the young wide receiver never gave up. This is a story of determination and perseverance. It is proof that anything is possible with hard work and a winning attitude. Adam's cousin Lindsay VonRuden and award-winning children's author Ryan Jacobson chronicle Adam's rise from an unrecruited, undrafted small-town football player to one of the best wide receivers in professional football. Complete with photographs from throughout Adam's life, this is a true story of inspiration. It's a must-read for every sports fan in Minnesota and beyond.

Author Biography

Lindsay VonRuden grew up in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. Her childhood included many summer days spent with family at her grandparents' lake cabin. Also at the cabin was her cousin, Adam Thielen. Lindsay and Adam share three Thielen traits: brown hair, brown eyes, and determination. While Lindsay's aspirations didn't include athletics, she has pursued a life of travel-related adventures. She has a rather lengthy bucket list and has completed some pretty interesting challenges to date: shark cage diving, bungee jumping, ostrich riding, glowworm cave rafting, and, now, writing a book! Ryan Jacobson is a successful Minnesota author and presenter. He prides himself on writing high-interest books for children and adults alike, so he can talk picture books in kindergarten, ghost stories in high school, and other fun stuff in between. He lives in rural Minnesota and has been a lifelong Minnesota sports fan.
