Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph grounded by family, reaching for stardom
One of the first calls Rudolph made after signing his new contract was to Craig James, his old tight ends coach, with a pledge to remodel the school's weight room.

"As good an athlete as he is, everything he's been able to achieve, his heart is that big," said James, a family friend who has known Rudolph since he was an infant.

"We tell our parents, when you give your kids to us, we hope to give you back better people. Kyle made us better people."
