South Dakota Sports Journalist Pens Book on 1969 Vikings

Created: 08/31/2014 9:59 AM KSTP.com

A Sioux Falls sports journalist has authored a book on the first Minnesota Vikings team to go to the Super Bowl, which happened in the last year of the old National Football League before pro football's biggest merger.
    
"Last Kings of the Old NFL: The 1969 Minnesota Vikings" is Pat Duncan's first book.
    
It chronicles the team's journey in less than three years from being without a coach, quarterback or direction to becoming the last champions of a golden era in pro football.
    
"Last Kings" is told through narrative and interviews with more than 30 players, coaches and others.
    
Duncan grew up in Sioux Falls and has been a sportswriter, columnist and copy desk editor at the Argus Leader for nearly 30 years.
