Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Kevin Williams Advances

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Kleinsasser will always have a special place in the hearts of Minnesota Vikings fans for his contributions to the team over his 13-year career. However, in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, he couldn't get by a man that has (rightly) been considered one of the NFL's best at his position during his Vikings' tenure.

Kevin Williams was triumphant in his match-up with Kleinsasser, and moved on to the Sweet 16 of our tournament. Once all the votes were counted up, Williams had accumulated 125 "recs" from the readers of The Daily Norseman, while Kleinsasser came out with 89 "recs." As much of a sentimental favorite as our favorite NoDak might have been in this one, this probably was the correct call.

Williams has a pretty sizable task ahead of him in the Sweet 16, though, as he takes on Fran Tarkenton for a chance to move on to the Elite 8.

The second round of our tournament is complete and the Sweet 16 is set, ladies and gentlemen! We will be kicking off the third round on Monday, July 29, so keep your eyes open for that.
