“My heart dropped. It could have been any child … I just knew I had to do something,” Pope said in an interview with ESPN First Take on Tuesday. “I wasn’t waiting on anyone else … to try to pull him out. I just felt because I have kids of my own, I would want someone to do that for my kids, also.”

Pope said he heard his friend yelling that her son was drowning, and all he could see was the child’s fingertips and the top of his head.

“He saved my son’s life, and I am so thankful that he was there for me and my child,” Moore told the Americus Times Recorder.

The Vikings are one of 15 NFL teams that hold training camp on the road, away from their team headquarters. For those cities, training camps are big business and Mankato is no different.

When River Falls, Wis., lost Kansas City Chiefs training camp in 2005, the city estimated its losses at $1.4 million. The Rural Policy Institute at Northern Arizona University estimates that Arizona Cardinals training camp brought $7 million in economic impact to Flagstaff and the university last year.

In Mankato, more than 60,000 camp visitors are estimated to generate about $5 million in local impact.
