MONTCLAIR, NJ - Former New York Giants player and Super Bowl winner David Tyree was given a commemorative Wilson Golden Football during a ceremony at his alma mater Montclair High School Tuesday morning. 

Tyree’s name and the Super Bowl in which he appeared was inscribed on the football.

The campaign entitled Super Bowl High School Honor Roll, is part of a year-long celebration of Super Bowl 50, honors and recognize players, schools and communities around the country that have shaped the game and are part of Super Bowl history.

The initiative honors players, coaches, and the communities where they grew up. Montclair High School also received a commemorative Golden Football produced by Wilson for the head coach from the school.

Tyree, who caught a pass for Montclair’s first touchdown when MHS won New Jersey’s Group IV, Section II state championship game in 1996, scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl XLII and helped the Giants defeat the Patriots with his spectacular one-handed catch late in the fourth quarter. 

This platform is designed to link the past 49 Super Bowls with this year's game and to also honor the communities that have positively impacted both the game of football the player as a person.

“High school football programs from coast to coast have consistently built men of high character by instilling the values of football in their student athletes. I firmly believe that football uniquely teaches lessons that last a lifetime and we look forward to honoring both you and your school,” said National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Montclair High School will also receive an NFL Character Education Curriculum and be eligible to apply for grants up to $5,000 from the NFL Foundation to help support and grow their high school football program. Tyree is also eligible to apply for additional funding support for the Montclair High School football program via the NFL Foundation's Player Matching Grant initiative.
