Two area youth football coaches are boarding a plane for a free trip to Minnesota for the Super Bowl.
Just before the start of the playoff game between the Buffalo Bills and Jaguars, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell presented coaches Rickie Simon Jr. and Tim Terry with tickets to the Super Bowl.
This gift is a thank you for the men work hard to be a positive influence for local kids. Simon and Terry make a difference in the lives of children every day with the Boys and Girls Club of Northeast Florida.
When they were led onto the field that day, Simon thought they might get something like a T-shirt. They never thought they would be given the gift of going to the Super Bowl. So they are layering up to prepare for the cold Minnesota temperatures.
The surprise was nothing short of incredible. Two life-size tickets now decorate Simon's office.
