A few weeks back, during the Vikings big 50th anniversary celebration, I went on a spree of writing to some players of my youth. John Swain was a cornerback for the Purple for four years in the '80s. He finished his career with stints in Miami and Pittsburgh, but like so many Vikings of his day he remained a Minnesota resident. He is currently the football coach for Patrick Henry High School in Minneapolis.
