The Notre Dame Prep freshman boys basketball team had the misdial of a lifetime, resulting in a FaceTime call with the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Well, after they thought they couldn't be bigger fans of the Bucs or Sean Murphy-Bunting, they were surprised again.
This time, Kim Murphy, mother of Sean Murphy-Bunting, showed up at the team's basketball practice and surprised each player and each coach with autographed gear. She handed out jerseys, footballs, tee shirts, and hats to every member of the team. The kids were ecstatic, not only to receive the gifts, but by the gesture of the Murphy family.
