#55 Anthony Barr's Interview on VikeFans.com

Aug 03 2014 08:44 PM | VikeFans in Player and Affiliated Interviews

We got lucky as we left the field following the Saturday night practice in Mankato. Thinking our interviewing schedule had been completed, when everyone rushed to interview Matt Cassel in a swarm of media pool media, we snuck over and caught Anthony Barr as he was leaving the field to head for his day off.

A very personable, bright young man, and we feel fortunate to hear from him, knowing later we can say "we knew him when..."

Please give a very warm welcome to our #1 Draft Choice, Anthony Barr (please excuse the video graininess, as we did not have our light to brighten the scene).
