Matt Paradis, a former Council High and Boise State football standout, won a Super Bowl championship with the Denver Broncos on Feb. 7. The second-year NFL player was the starting center for quarterback Peyton Manning as the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. On Thursday in the Idaho Senate, Sen. Abby Lee, R-Fruitland, read a resolution honoring Paradis.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said Tuesday that he has no regrets for how he handled the Super Bowl news conference, where he mostly said one-word answers and walked off after about three minutes. After his comments, his teammates cheered him.
