Bismarck Native and former NFL Quarterback Brooks Bollinger came back to his hometown today (8/8)  to sign some autographs during the Grand Opening of the new Dick's Sporting Goods in the Hay Creek Shopping Center.

Brooks was born in Bismarck, graduated from Grand Forks, and spent time as QB for the Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets, and Dallas Cowboys. He spent some time coaching College ball before moving on to pursue other opportunities.

He spent the afternoon at the new Bismarck Dick's Sporting Goods signing autographs, shaking hands, and taking photos with whoever wanted to say Hi. He even took plenty of time to talk with people who knew him back in the day, or that knew his family.  Brooks' appearance was all a part of the Grand Opening of the new Dick's in Bismarck.
