On Saturday, Bainbridge, Georgia residents gathered to welcome back a home town hero.
The name is James Butler, the game was the Super Bowl. To say he shined on the big stage would be an understatement, as Butler led the Giants shocking charge with 10 tackles.
The area youth was paying attention.
9-year old Angelo Weaver was one of the many young athletes inspired by Butler, "I'm gonna make it to college. Then I'm gonna go to the teams, and I'm gonna try to go to the Super Bowl my first time."
