Written by January 15, 2019 /Sports News – National Alaska boy picked as NFL Kid Correspondent for Super Bowl 53 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — The NFL teams aren’t quite set, but one person is already Super Bowl bound after finding out Tuesday morning that he will be this year’s NFL Kid Correspondent. Camdyn Clancy, 8, came to ABC News’ Good Morning America all the way from Alaska to get the surprise of his life: that he has been selected as this year’s big winner for the NFL Play 60 contest. Clancy was visibly stunned and excited upon hearing the wonderful news and said, “It means a lot to me.” He will head to Atlanta the week of the Super Bowl and get behind-the-scenes access to players, coaches and fans throughout the week and, of course, on Sunday, Feb. 3, he will stand on the sidelines to cover the biggest football game of the year. The excited youth football quarterback told former NFL star and GMA co-anchor Michael Strahan that he led his team in Alaska to a championship after battling back from an injury — just like his favorite player, Tyler Lockett. “He broke his leg and came back through the injury that could have actually stopped him from playing, but he actually chose to play,” Clancy said. “I broke my arm when I was 4 years old, and four years later, I was quarterbacking and led my team to the championship.” Clancy said he admires the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver because he’s a good sport who is “humble; he wins with class and he loses with class.” Then, Lockett delivered a personal message to the young fan via video message on GMA and told him he hopes to see him in Atlanta. “Thanks for cheering us on from Alaska,” Lockett said. “I sent you a jersey to represent the 12s. Have a great time, and I hope to see you in Atlanta. Go Hawks!” The Seahawks mascot, Blitz, presented Clancy with a brand new jersey, and Clancy celebrated with his best touchdown dance.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. Beau Lund
3. It Shoulda Been You, “Jenny’s Blues”—13%Here comes the surprise—in an evening chock full of performances from Tony-nominated musicals, 13% of fans voted “Jenny’s Blues” from It Shoulda Been You, a show that got zero nominations, the best number of the evening. Headliner Lisa Howard belted her heart out and brought the house down. Bravo! View Comments One of the best parts of the Tony Awards (aside from the moving speeches and gorgeous red carpet looks) is seeing stage stars perform selections from our favorite Broadway musicals live on national TV. This year’s ceremony was chock full of great performances, including numbers from The King and I, On the Town, Gigi, An American in Paris, Finding Neverland and tons more. We asked you to vote for your favorites—and some of the results are a surprise! 1. Fun Home, “Ring of Keys”—35%In a sea of medleys and flashy dance numbers, Fun Home opted for a more subtle and moving choice. 11-year-old Tony nominee Sydney Lucas commanded the stage as she sang her moving anthem “Ring of Keys,” the song we’ve had stuck in our heads all spring. Although Lucas didn’t end up taking home her first Tony Award, Fun Home won Best Musical, the biggest award of the night. 2. Something Rotten!, “A Musical”—17%In lieu of a traditional opening number, co-hosts Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming passed the baton to Brian d’Arcy James, Brad Oscar and the cast of Something Rotten!, who started off the ceremony with an all-singing, all-dancing spoof of Broadway musicals. Did you find all of the references to Les Miz, A Chorus Line, Annie and more? Let’s watch it again!
