The Green Bay Packers are taking home the Vince Lombardi Trophy…  and Niagara Falls Native James Starks played a big role in the championship game!

The Niagara Falls High School graduate rushed 37 yards on seven carries to lead all rushers in the first 30 minutes of the game.  Then, late in the fourth quarter, had a vital 14-yard run that led to a field goal and ultimately helped the Packers defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 in Superbowl XLV!

The Buffalo News reports Starks was greeted by his older brother, Sanquin, and his mother, Lillie Hall, on the field after the win.    Sanquin said, “When I finally got to him, I just gave him a big hug and lifted him in the air.”  All he said was, ‘I told you we were going to do it.”  Sanquin added, “They crowned my brother as a world champion tonight. There’s no better feeling.”

Last year, it was South Buffalo’s Patrick Kane that won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks…  this year we can all celebrate James Starks…  proof that dreams do come true!
