HONORARY GRAND MARSHALL FOR SYTTENDE MAI PARADE
JAN STENRUD OF PRO FOOTBALL FAME
WILL BE AT OUR CELEBRATION BANQUET

Born in Fetsund, in the county of Akershus, Norway, Stenerud came to the United States in 1954 as a college student, on a ski jumping scholarship to Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. Jan was also an All-American ski jumping and a three-time Big Sky champion.

The first Norwegian to play in the NFL, Stenrud played for the AFL/NFL Kansas City Chiefs (1967–1979), Green Bay Packers (1980–1983), and Minnesota Vikings (1984–1985). He is the first pure placekicker to be inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Stenerud was one of the first professional football players to be used as a dedicated kicker, because of his excellent "sharpshooting" ball-kicking performance. He was one of the first placekickers to use the "soccer style", a technique the Hungarian-born Pete Gogolak had recently introduced in the AFL. During his first three years as professional, the last seasons for the AFL, Stenerud hit 70% of his field goals, compared with a 53% average for the other kickers in the AFL and NFL.
