A Professional Friendship

July 31, 2014, 10:51 PM by Cat Clark

A Professional Friendship
MANKATO, MN -

Friendship can take you a lot of places. For two childhood friends from Spearfish it has taken them up close and personal with the game they grew up loving together.
"I don't think I would rather be anywhere else. This is great, it's close to home, and a lot of fun," Vikings Public Relations Assistant Sam Newton said.

We first introduced you to Spearfish native, Sam Newton, in 2010 when he began his internship at Vikings training camp. Fast forward four years and he is now a full-time Public Relations Assistant who hired his childhood friend, Travis Langer, to take the internship that got him where he is today.

"It was interesting how it all worked out, but I'm happy it did. Sam did an internship through Minnesota State University as well, so I got my foot in the door at MSU and with the Vikings through him. I was fortunate to know the right people and in the right places," Langer said.

Sam and Travis have been friends since elementary school, where they fell in love with the game of football. The two extended their friendship onto the campus of Black Hills State. Sam then finished up at MSU before interning for the Florida Gators. Now a full time employee with the Vikings he extended a helping hand to his friend.

"He actually just graduated from MSU with his graduate degree and then we hired him as our season long intern, the position I just completed. It's pretty cool to see it come full circle, it’s good to have a familiar face around all the time," Newton said.

These two both know it is extremely hard to get the positions they each have with thousands of applicants each year. However they have proven what can happen when two friends share the same dream.

"I feel extremely blessed. Being in this situation is a blessing in itself, but then being able to do it with one of your best friends growing up has been fun. We started in seventh grade playing football together and now we are still out on the football field all these years later, still friends, still having a good time together," Langer said.
