MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Augsburg College helped give a newly 100-year-old man quite the memorable birthday celebration.
Edor Nelson was born in Dawson, Minnesota in 1914. He graduated from Augsburg in 1938, where he played baseball, football and basketball.
Nelson was inducted into Augsburg’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1975.
He enjoyed spending time with friends and family at the school on Monday, where they renamed the football field for him, complete with a beautiful scoreboard.
At his birthday party, he was asked what it’s like to be 100 years old.
“Not young,” Nelson said, laughing.
