A familiar face roams the pathways of Mankato each year, and his name is Tom Moore. Known best for his training camp interviews and one-on-one spots in the Minnesota Vikings locker room, Tom is a longstanding member of the Vikings media community and recognizable name at VikeFans.com.

He took some time after a busy season of videography to catch up with Adam Warwas as part of Vikings Territory’s “Three Questions” series of posts. Today, we learned plenty about Minnesota’s most famous alumni, the beauty of U.S. Bank Stadium, and the potential of the Vikings offense in 2017.
