Cross City Celebrates Super Bowl Hero Nick Collins
Nick Collins has done it the small-town way his whole life; starring as a Dixie County Bear in high school, going to Division 1-AA Bethune-Cookman, bypassing the flashier D-1 schools along the way, and getting drafted in the 2nd round (51st overall) to the small-market Green Bay Packers. Still, the small-town kid has always played big, including on the biggest stage of them all. Nick Collins, a free safety for the Packers, intercepted Ben Roethlisberger in the 1st quarter of Super Bowl XLV and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown. On Saturday, Collins came back where it all started, as Cross City honored its Super Bowl champ with a parade, and a key to the city.
