Military families attend Pro Bowl practice

Military families stood outside the University of Phoenix Stadium for hours; all bundled up waiting to watch the Pro Bowl practice.

They were hoping to meet some of their favorite NFL players.

Andrew Luck is a fan favorite. "My grandfather served in the Korean War, the sacrifices he made, the sacrifices these folks make to let us play kids game, and certain days you may take it for granted, but you realize the importance of all of these folks and what they do for our country."

Luck even signed a deflated football for a fan. 

"I got Barwin's autograph, I got Houston's autograph," said another fan.

"What they do for us, I mean you can't repay that anyway so I just try to do what I can," said Calais Campbell.

"I didn't realize how big they are until you see them in person," said a fan.

"To be out here today putting on a great show for these guys is definitely a pleasure, not only for me, but for the NFL as well," said Patrick Peterson.
