On Location Experiences, Deion Sanders, and the team at Good Morning America are thrilled to announce the contest winner for the Super Coach Surprise.
The lucky recipient of an exclusive trip to Houston for Super Bowl LI is Coach Phillip Rhodes — a world geography teacher, junior varsity head football coach, assistant varsity football coach and head boys’ track coach at Childress High School in Texas.
When the contest kicked off, votes flooded in for Coach Rhodes; he was nominated by over 100 people for his passion and incredible dedication.
With stories ranging from purchasing equipment and shoes for those who could not afford it, to having lunch with his students each and every day, to handwritten notes addressing strengths and weaknesses of his players, Coach Rhodes exemplifies a leader who is willing to go above and beyond for his team.
The best part? Coach Rhodes has been watching the Super Bowl since 1970 but has never attended an NFL game.
We couldn’t be more excited to meet Mr. Rhodes in Houston – congratulations coach!
