NFL Celebrates 50th Super Bowl High School Honor Roll
27 Oct, 2015
NFL to Celebrate Schools and Communities with Super Bowl High School Honor Roll
As part of the nationwide kickoff to the Super Bowl 50 celebration, the NFL launched the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll initiative recognizing schools and communities that contributed to Super Bowl history and positively impacted the game of football.
High schools across the nation, and around the world, will receive a commemorative Wilson Golden Football for every player or head coach who graduated from their school and was on an active Super Bowl roster. Nearly 3,000 players and head coaches, and more than 2,000 high schools, will be recognized. Players and coaches will also have the opportunity to personally deliver golden footballs.
Former San Francisco 49ers left tackle and Super Bowl XVI Champion Dan Audick will return to Wasson High School in Colorado Springs to deliver the commemorative football to its Alumni Association on Saturday, November 7 at 2:00 p.m.
The ceremony to be held in the gymnasium will also include recognition of Wasson's six state championship teams. Former students, teachers and administrators will be in attendance including the Sports Corp's Colorado Springs Sports Hall of Fame Committee Co-Chair and Class of 2014 Inductee Tom Falgien, long-time Wasson educator and administrator. All former alumni, teachers, coaches, and anyone connected with Wasson, are encouraged to attend the rally.
