ST. LUCIE COUNTY — On Wednesday, December 2, 2015, Fort Pierce Central High School (FPCHS) will accept the Super Bowl Honor Roll Wilson Golden Football — a symbol of distinction bestowed upon the school on behalf of Robert Weathers (FPCHS Class of 1978) and the National Football League (NFL). The induction ceremony in which FPCHS will become part of the community of schools that have contributed to Super Bowl history will take place during an in-school basketball game.
Select high schools across the country will receive a commemorative Golden Football produced by Wilson for each player or head coach who graduated from the high school and was on an active Super Bowl roster. The Cobras are proud of alumni Robert Weathers who played for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX. Alex Gerson of the NFL stated in a letter to Principal Todd Smith “…we are proud to induct your high school into the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll.”
As part of the Super Bowl Honor Roll, FPCHS will receive the Wilson Golden Football and the NFL Character Education Curriculum. In addition, the high school will be eligible to apply for grants from the NFL Foundation to help support and grow their high school football programs.
