December 22, 2017 01:11 PM

Josh Aune of St. Paul Highland Park high school was all smiles today after signing with the University of Minnesota. Aune is the first public school player from the city of St. Paul to sign with the University of Minnesota to play football since 1999.

"It's a dream come true for me.  After being recruited by Minnesota and listening to what Coach Fleck was telling me it seemed to make me feel it would be a good fit to go there," said Aune.


Aune had other offers, but in the end chose Minnesota.
