Boron High School is the smallest 11-man high school football team in California, but come February 1st, the 23-man roster will be living large when the team is at Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona.
The Bobcats were the group winner of the NFL’s Together We Make Football contest that rewards two inspiring football stories each year with trips to the Super Bowl. To become eligible, the NFL asked groups and individuals to submit their stories of what football meant to them. Finalists were then named in a group and individual category, and people voted online for the story they liked best.
The Boron football team received the news that they were heading to the Super Bowl from Hall of Fame running back Marcus Allen.
The individual story winner is Christian Osterhout, a player at Crossings Christian School in Oklahoma, who lost both of his parents in the span of three years and then moved-in with his high school coach.
Osterhout and his family got their tickets from Deion Sanders.
