The South Cobb Eagles football team, along with the Campbell Junior High team, was invited to help with the “Rise Up” flags on the field at last Sunday’s Falcons vs. Buccaneers game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Eagles showed up early and got to meet some special guests and tour the stadium.
The teams got to take an insider’s tour of the stadium, seeing the press box, the media room, and spend some time on the field. On the sidelines, they got to meet Falcons’ Head Coach Dan Quinn, NFL Hall of Famer Ed Reed, Tampa Bay QB Jameis Winston, and other NFL players.
South Cobb sophomore lineman Braxton Greer said the experience was unforgettable. “It was crazy,” he said, “so many people don’t get an opportunity like this. Being on the same field with players I grew up watching on TV was a great experience. I would love to do it again.”
