USD Alum Tom Compton Joins Parkston Native Riley Reiff On Vikings Offensive Line
Native Minnesota Has Strong Relationship With Kirk Cousins Dating Back To Rookie Year In Washington
EAGAN, MN — If you’re a fan of, or have watched, college and prep football in the state of South Dakota, the Minnesota Vikings have some familiar faces in training camp this year. Among the five local alums in camp is a fan favorite down in Vermillion, USD alum Tom Compton.
Six seasons after the former Coyote was taken in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by Washington, the Rosemount native signed with his hometown team back in March and joins Parkston native Riley Reiff along the offensive line. Along with the depth he provides, Compton has a strong relationship with new quarterback Kirk Cousins after the two roomed together as rookies.
All of that made coming home to Minnesota an easy choice.
