STAMFORD, Conn. – December 31, 2015 – Tomorrow’s “Together We Make Football” segment on TODAY unveils the last of five campaign finalists and the story of how the game has inspired them.
Selected from more than 3,500 entries by a joint NFL and NBC panel, the five finalists’ stories were turned into short features by NFL Films, with a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl 50. The winning story will be announced live on TODAY next Friday, January 8, 2016.
Last Friday, Duke Sheow, a Seattle Seahawks fan who came to America from Vietnam in 1979, was revealed as the fourth finalist. Sheow bonded with the Hancock family, which sponsored him and his relatives when they arrived in Seattle. Sheow, who has since moved to Los Angeles, and the Hancocks are still in touch and often talk about their shared affinity for the Seahawks.
