Jasper County High School's football team is taking home $5,000 after winning a video contest put on by Hooters and ESPN commentator and former NFL Head Coach John Gruden.
The team was presented with the check Tuesday at a team wing party at Hooters in Macon.
Team dad Mike Cavender said he helped put the video together and was pleasantly surprised when they won.
"I kind of thought it was a joke when they told me the news and talked about how everything would be, you know it was really wonderful, and all the boys on the football team and everybody in the community is really having a wonderful time with it and we're really glad," Cavender said.
A select number of football players and coaches also got the chance to meet Gruden in Atlanta Wednesday.
