FARGO — Ellendale-Edgeley-Kulm junior running back Clayton Grueneich was limping late in the third quarter of the North Dakota Class 1A state championship football game against Des Lacs-Burlington on Friday. He never stopped limping. And he never stopped playing, leading E-E-K to a 42-20 win and a state title in the Fargodome.
FARGO—Former North Dakota State All-American and NFL linebacker Joe Mays looked around at the tailgating scene Saturday, Oct. 1, in the Fargodome parking lot and couldn't contain his smile. It had been nearly seven years to the day, since the last time Mays had set foot in Fargo. "Football has usually been taking my attention," said Mays, who played for six NFL teams from 2008-2015. "It's hard for me to draw some days, as far as bye weeks, so it was tough to get back. I just haven't been able to make it back, unfortunately."
Q: If you could have one superpower what would it be? A: That's a tough one. I'd like to fly because I enjoy the feeling of being up high and all that. Q: What is the most embarrassing song on your phone or iPod? A: "Call Me Maybe" (by Carly Rae Jepsen). Q: What's the funniest trash talk you've ever received? A: One guy from Jacksonville State made fun of my shoes. They were older, tattered, had a hole in them. I couldn't understand what he was saying, but I picked out the word "shoe" two or three times in there.
