Minnesota fans are still basking in the "Minnesota Miracle" - the 61-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Case Keenum to wide receiver Stefon Diggs that lifted the Vikings past New Orleans in the NFC Divisional playoffs last Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

But fans in his hometown of Abilene, Texas got used to seeing him make big plays during his days at Wylie High School, where he led the team to a state championship in 2004.

And they will be rooting for he and the Vikings when they take on the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game at 5:40 p.m. Sunday in Philadelphia.

Before that though, KSTP sports director Joe Schmit visited Abilene Thursday and sat down with Keenum's father Steve.
