Milwaukee Native Wins Super Bowl
MILWAUKEE - As Super Bowl parties go, Idella Ragsdale's was a little more super than most.
"I'm very excited," said Ragsdale.
She's a Milwaukee resident who is a resident New Orleans Saints fan.
"It's a once in a life time moment being his grandmother," she said.
She's talking about number 32 Jabari Greer, her grandson and starting defensive cornerback for this year's Super Bowl champs.
"Ever since he was about seven he always said he would make it big," she said.
And make it big, he did to the biggest game in the world.
Greer was born in Milwaukee and moved to Texas when he was about seven years old.
Many of his family still live here and tonight gathered to watch him and cheer on the Saints, including Jabari's cousin, Tasha Jefferson.
"Jabari was one of the smart kids that was smart with us," Jefferson said with a smile. "He gave us sass so it's nice to see him putting the sass to action on the field, we appreciate it."
A proud family and a proud grandma who doesn't need a Super Bowl ring to know her grandson is pretty…super.
"Go Saints," cheered Ragsdale.
