Vikings’ Leslie Frazier Headed Home to Columbus

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Minnesota Vikings head coach and Columbus native Leslie Frazier will be the keynote speaker this Thursday at a dinner benefiting the annual Columbus senior citizens Thanksgiving luncheon.

Columbus Mayor Robert Smith, and Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier, on the right, have known each other since the mid-1970s, when Smith was a football coach and Frazier was a star athlete at Lee High School.

Frazier attended Alcorn State University and played with the Chicago Bears from 1981 to 1985. He’s been the head coach of the Vikings since 2011 and is a two-time Superbowl Champion.
