Vestal Grad Schultz presents Gold Football to alma mater

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, the NFL is giving nearly 3,000 golden footballs to high schools that produced a Super Bowl participant. Vestal Grad John Schultz returned to his alma mater Friday to present a gold football to the school for his participation in Super Bowl XII.

Schultz was the Special Teams captain for the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XII. In addition to giving the commemorative pigskin to the school, the school in return retired his #43 football jersey.

Schultz says it's important for young kids to find their path in life and go at it with everything they can.

"Get your dreams as high as the sky, anything is possible," Schultz said. "Mine was football but if you're in other fields that you'd like to get into just believe that you can do it. Do everything you can possibly do to get yourself in that position and see what happens. You have nothing to lose so go for the stars. Do whatever you can do, do it as well as you can and you never know where you're going to end up."

Back in December U-E Grad Isaiah Kacyvenski presented a gold football to the U-E student body for his participation with the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL.

This year's Super Bowl 50 will take place on February 7th at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA - home of the San Francisco 49ers.
