Every year the South Dakota State University Football Team has a day of service in the Sioux Falls community. But this year was a little more special.
For the team members that were at Touchmark at all Saints, serving root beer floats wasn't the only thing they got to do. The football players got the chance to see a super bowl ring up close and talk with Paul Robbie. Robbie and his brother started the Miami Dolphins. For both the team members and the 90-year-old, it was an enjoyable day to reminisce and get inspired about someday being part of the NFL.
“Sisseton (is a place) that not a lot of people have heard of, so that gives me motivation that he did it so I can,” said Bryan Witzmann, a Left Tackle for SDSU Football.
“Oh yeah this is great, I am enjoying this. They are all great people,” said Paul Robbie, co-founder of the Miami Dolphins.
Robbie has a bit of advice for the aspiring pro football players. He said be yourself and help others, and you'll have more success in life.
