NFL Stars Delivering Footballs to GCS Alma Maters

Players from Super Bowl teams are delivering
the footballs to eight GCS high schools.

Greensboro, N.C. – Eight GCS schools are being recognized as part of the nationwide Super Bowl High School Honor Roll. The initiative recognizes schools and communities that contributed to Super Bowl history and positively impacted the game of football.

Each recognized school, including 87 in North Carolina, 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, and players and head coaches have the opportunity to personally deliver the golden footballs.

Already, Super Bowl alumni have visited High Point Central, Grimsley High, Page High and Smith High.

Tory Holt will present a ball to Eastern High today at noon. That presentation will be one of a few featured during Thursday night football in December.

Demario Pressley will deliver a ball to Dudley High during its game on Friday, Nov. 13, and other events will be scheduled at Andrews High and Southern High.
