Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater celebrated Brianna Rollins' gold-medal finish Wednesday night by tweeting congratulations to the fellow alum from Northwestern High School in Miami.
Rollins won the women’s 100-meter hurdle race Wednesday at the Rio Olympics to lead the U.S. sweep of gold, silver and bronze in the event.
Leading up to Wednesday’s race, SportsCenter highlighted the talent to come out of Northwestern High in Rollins, Bridgewater and Oakland wide receiver Amari Cooper. The trio graduated just a few years apart with Rollins, 25, a 2009 graduate. Bridgewater is 23 and Cooper 22.
