The Fosston football team is making noble moves off the field. Today players tackled some big projects at the home of one of their biggest fans.

Team members helped replace siding, windows and paint on Carl Benson's home. Carl lives there with three other men who are intellectually disabled. Carl attends all of the team's home games, and helps out with cleaning up and other tasks. When the group home asked for help the team huddled up and went to work.

The materials for the remodel were donated by different local businesses or purchased with money raised by Fosston fund raisers. The team plans to return next spring for a landscaping project.
