The Gopher Road Trip made its round to Park Rapids on Tuesday, and head football coach P.J. Fleck made an offer to one lucky kid: If he could beat Fleck in a wrestling match, the coach would pay for him and a friend to attend wrestling and football camp at the University of Minnesota.
But if Fleck won, fellow men's basketball head coach Richard Pitino and Fleck would receive a lifetime membership to Blueberry Pines Golf Course, just south of Park Rapids in Menahga, Minnesota.
Fun stuff. ????

The young fan prevailed, and he'll be attending both camps later this summer.
However, the Gopher wrestling team noticed – and told Fleck he needs to work on his mat defense.
Apparently Fleck's pants were a little too tight, because they ripped after he lost the match. How embarrassing for such an "elite" football coach.
The Gopher Road Trip wraps up on Wednesday with stops in Hibbing and Sartell.
