About Cole Smith

About the Author, from the author: “Cole has been an avid Vikings and NFL fan since he was five years old. He began memorizing stats when looking at the back of football cards and can give you a complete history off of almost anything NFL-related off the top of his head. He began putting this knowledge to work in 2017 and then became even more Vikings-centric in 2020 when he joined The Vikings Gazette. When he isn’t watching or reading about football, Cole is usually giving heated opinions on movies and is sharing his dislike for almost everything food-related.”
