A member of both the college and professional football Hall of Fame, McElhenny was an elegant running back who earned the nickname of "the King." Fans of the new Vikings franchise were thrilled when he became available to the team via the expansion draft. Nearing the end of his career, McElhenny played for the Vikings for two years and was the first Viking player to be named to play in the Pro Bowl.
