Proud parents experience Super Bowl

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

LINDALE, TEXAS (KLTV) -  Two proud East Texans are still in Miami after their son set a super record on Dun day.  Bill and Cookie Hartley of Lindale were in the stands as their son Garrett used his foot to help the Saints win a championship

With a record 106 million viewers watching, Saints kicker Garrett Hartley set a Super Bowl record with three field goals of at least 44 yards.  It was a long night of partying for the Saints and the Hartley family.

"Oh yeah we partied with him," said Cookie Hartley.  "I don't think they stopped the party until about six o'clock in the morning. It was just an awesome moment, great adventure. Something that we'll remember forever."

The Hartley's will return to East Texas on Tuesday.  The experience has been a dream come true.

"We're so glad that Garrett is apart of that," said Bill Hartley.  "You're so proud of the situation."

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
