Every day kept getting better and more exciting as the big day was close. The 4th Annual NFL Honors Awards took place on the eve of Super Bowl Sunday.
I was invited to attend this star-studded event. As I rode the elevator from my hotel to attend the event, I stood next to Carolina Panthers linebacker, winner of the Walter Payton Man of The Year Award, Thomas Davis. He took the time to take a picture with me and was a very nice guy who does great work for underprivileged children and their families. Once I arrived to the event, I walked the red carpet for the first time ever and walked right behind the evening's host, late night talk show host Seth Meyers, who was very funny.Entering into the event provided me the opportunity to talk and take pictures with legendary players, such as Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter. I spoke to the NFLPA Executive Director, DeMaurice Smith, who introduced me to the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, Clark Hunt. I was able to spend time with the winner of the Together We Make Football contest, Christian from Oklahoma. Amazing players, such as Aaron Rogers and Odell Beckham Jr. took time out to say hello to me and high five me.
When the event ended, I was leaving and I walked right next to actress Mariska Hargitay from the show Law and Order and asked her if she would take a picture with me and she was so nice! The night was so exciting, but I knew I better get some rest for the big moment!
