Villanova Featured by NFL Films

NFL Films Releases Villanova's Segment in Upcoming Super Bowl 50 Special

Villanova's Luke Willson, Seattle Seahawks #82, holds up the Canadian flag, with his mom in the background, after winning Super Bowl 48

On November 6, 2015, Luke Willson revisited his alma mater, St. Thomas of Villanova, to donate the Golden Football he received as one of over 3,000 recipients who have participated in the previous 49 Super Bowls.  It is part of a program called The NFL High School Honour Roll where all past and future Super Bowl participants will receive a Golden Football to give to their high schools commemorating that school's dedication to football and character building.

Over 3,000 Golden Footballs went out to 2,000 high schools.  Twenty footballs went outside of the United States, 15 of which came to Canada.  Of those 2,000 high schools, only 17 were selected by NFL Films to be featured in an hour-long special which will air on CBS the morning of Super Bowl Sunday.  Luke Willson and St. Thomas of Villanova will be one of them.
