Many will say that Paul Christenson was this area's greatest fan. The Cokato Cardinals' and Dassel-Cokato Chargers' games would always find Paul on the sideline rooting for his team. Born with Downs Syndrome, Paul carved out a spot in the heart of anyone that knew him with his good humor and friendliness. Coaches and players made sure that there was always a seat at the end of the bench or up front on the bus as Paul was a "regular" on any team. Paul passed away in 1990 at 64 years of age.
