A Frisco middle
schooler with one hand beat out some tough competition to win a trip to this
year's Super Bowl.
Tyler Sampson is a winner
in the NFL's Together We Make Football contest, and the announcement took his
whole family by surprise.
Sampson, who plays football, won three
tickets and an all-expenses-paid trip to the Super Bowl as one of five winners
in an online voting contest.
Sampson's story, the video he submitted
for the contest, highlighted his determination to play football despite being
born with the lower part of his right arm missing. The video has inspired
millions, including his parents.
Sampson, his dad and his twin brother will
fly out the Wednesday before the Super Bowl. His mom will fly out too, though
she may not get a ticket to the game.
Sampson also plays baseball as a pitcher
and recently made his select team.
