Neil Clabo was my husband's cousin. It was truly an historic moment for our family
when he made his debut in the NFL in 1975 with the Minnesota Vikings, and played with
them his entire 3-year career. Most people believe 1975 was his best year, as
he dropped 19 punts inside the 20 and had a 41.1 yard punt average. (I have no
idea what that means, but I'm proud of him!) He could sure put away the
food at homecomings!
