Brooks Reed's family reflects on Super Bowl experience

Posted: Updated:

If you want to know what it's like to play in a Super Bowl, there are 51 years of interviews for that. but in the stands, or at home, parents and former coaches go through jitters too.

"I actually get a little bit more nervous (watching than coaching) to be honest with you," said former Sabino head coach Jay Campos.

Sabino High grad and former UA standout Brooks Reed is immortalized in the Sabino trophy case, and he joined a select group of players to play in the Super Bowl last season.

"To see Brooks play in the Super Bowl was pretty special, no doubt about that," said Campos.

Reed came a long way from his youth days in Tucson, where he started playing football at eight years old. His dad, Bob Reed, said he never thought his son could be a professional player when he first picked up pads.

"Never crossed my mind," Said Bob Reed.

But, a starring role at Sabino, a starring role at Arizona and six productive seasons in the NFL later, Reed got to play on the big stage.

"It's a whole new experience, very expensive, a lot of people and parties," said Bob Reed. "Very exciting game."

Unfortunately for Reed and the Falcons, that exciting game ended in one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history.

"We didn't know we were going to win in a blowout, then in the 4th quarter we found out we weren't going to win in a blowout," said Reed. "They put their hearts into it and worked so hard for it, and it was within their grasp."

But for a community supporting #50 from Sabino high, their Super experience is something special.
