Super Bowl 49: California team wins NFL Together We Make Football contest

 The National Football League had a contest around the country for high schools; "Together We Make Football" and a team from the winning school got a free trip to the Super Bowl.

It's a long way from the tiny town of Boron, California to the Super Bowl in glendale.

The school only has 150 students, 75 of them boys, but they play 11 man football, the smallest school in the State of California to do it. 

So winning the NFL's contest and traveling to the valley of the sun for this game is a big thrill.

"Well we are doing the whole Super Bowl extravaganza thing, it has just been an amazing meeting with all kinds of players in there, with Dwight Clark, and Warrick Dunn just to name a few," said Tim Seaman.

"I was just stunned, it's amazing that we got picked, thanks to the supporters it's the best experience of most of our lives, like all of our lives," said Alvin Osunwa. 

"Boron is a small place and they do not have much, but it is a compassionate community and they love football," said Ruben Alcarez.

The Boron Bobcats are getting the full VIP treatment and today that means going to the NFL Experience, but not before displaying a little team spirit.

Boron, California is a small town in the Mohave Desert, about 2 1/2 hours from Los Angeles. It's named after the chemical element Boron and it is near the site of the world's largest open-pit Borax mine.
