Central High football team hosts Super Bowl watch party with senior citizens

Local News

A high school football team in Knoxville spent the Super Bowl with some special friends at the Life-Spring Senior Living Community.

Sunday’s ‘Super Bowl Sunday Bash’ has been a year in the making. The Bobcats won the first state title ever for Central High School last year.

The coach says while his players also helped out at the senior center, last night was just about spending some time with the residents and watching some football.

“I always tell them there’s guys that have played before them and there’s guys that will play after them and you just never know how serving the community will impact the program,” said Central football coach Bryson Rosser. “The community has absolutely wrapped their arms around this since I’ve been here and as we give back to them they give back to us and just showing up at the games and just loving on these kids has been an unbelievable thing.”

Rosser tries to coordinate a community event with his players every month.
