Indianapolis - It was anything but a normal day at a downtown elementary school Tuesday. A Super Bowl hero visited as the guest of 11-year-old Aiden McMichael.
Aiden knows a little something about football.
"I don't play it, but I watch it all the time."
"Things like that don't normally happen," said Matt McMichael, Aiden's father
Earlier this year, Matt entered the Verizon Wireless NFL show-and-tell contest on Facebook and won.
"I think I'm maybe more nervous than the kids. I'm looking forward to it."
"Well it might be a little uncomfortable because I'm not used to being in a limo," said Delaney McMichael, Aiden's sister.
Aiden and his 9-year-old sister were in front of their house wearing their Colts gear when the limo pulled up and Dallas Clark got out.
"I'm Dallas Clark, nice to meet you."
After a few pictures everyone piled into the limo, making room among the boxes filled with gifts for their classmates, for the short ride to the IPS Center for Inquiry.
The rest of the students were already in the gym, waiting for the guests of honor to arrive. Once Dallas walked in, cheers filled the school.
For a few minutes, the tight end talked to the students about eating healthy and being active. He even answered a few questions.
"How much milk did you drink as a kid?"
"I drank two cartons of milk every day," said Dallas.
He couldn't get around some questions, though.
"Why y'all losing so much?"
"That's to the point. We're just not scoring as many points as the other team. That's usually how they keep score," Dallas said.
Dallas then went to Aiden's science class where he passed out signed football helmets to each student.
"It's great to come out and see these kids reiterate the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, eating right, working hard, drinking milk and just seeing their smiling faces. This is a great environment, great school," Dallas said.
Aiden and his sister said it's an experience they'll always remember.
