Iowa teen given Super Bowl tickets

Posted: Updated:

Most people only dream of watching the Super Bowl in person.

However, one eastern Iowa boy's dream is about to come true.

Logan Manderfield was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy, and for the last three years, his family has held a 5-K run to raise money and awareness for the disease.

So, the Lynch Family Foundation decided to recognize Logan for all his help.

Turkey Valley 8th Grade student Logan Manderfield says he didn't know what to say when he was given the tickets.

"I was just... I was... speechless I guess," Logan said.

Logan said he went to visit the Lynch Family Foundation last week, and he had no idea what to expect.

"I went there to meet all the people who work there, and they say they had a gift for me, and that's where I got these tickets from. I actually didn't know anything about it, until I got the tickets," Logan said.

With two $2,100 tickets and passes to the pre-game show, 14-year-old Logan said he plans to take his dad, and they'll make a full day of it.

"Well, we're going to leave in the morning, and we have these things for a pre-party, some lanyards. The pre-party is from 1 to 4 p.m.," Logan said.

At first, Logan said he couldn't believe the Lynch Family Foundation gave him the tickets, he said that trying to convince his friends about the big news was difficult too.

"Some people didn't believe me at first, but it's true," Logan said.

Even though Logan is a Cowboy's fan, he said he's rooting for the Eagles this weekend.

After the game, he said he plans to spend the rest of the month in front of the television while watching the winter games on KWWL.
