Osseo’s Tusler named Mr. Football

Osseo High’s Bridge Tusler was named the 2012 Mr. Football in Minnesota Sunday, Dec. 9. Here, Tusler is joined by Maple Grove’s Jake Wieneke, who was one of the 10 finalists for the award. Tusler and Wieneke are fierce competitors on the football field and basketball court because of the intense rivalry of the two schools. But they also have been good friends since about fifth grade and the two and their families were able to celebrate their accomplishments together at the banquet. (Photo courtesy of the Tusler family)
