Most of us can only dream of getting tickets to the Super Bowl, but it's a reality for one St. Paul youth football coach.
Coach Leo Jackson was surprised to receive two tickets to the big game on Sunday for his community service work helping kids in the neighborhood.
The tickets were awarded by the NFL and the Super Bowl Host Committee. Jackson coaches at the Jimmy Lee Recreation Center.
Jackson said he was shocked by the tickets.
"My heart dropped into my stomach," Jackson said. "Even though it can be thankless, even though it goes without pay, the reward is in the work, and impacting lives is so rewarding it's make you happy."
Jackson plans on taking his 7-year-old son Leo Jr. to the big game.
