Students at Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis were in the Super Bowl spotlight Friday.
The school is taking part in the NFL's Super Learning in a Super State program. The program provides educational opportunities for students and teachers in reading, writing and American history, among other subjects.
One of the people the kids will be learning about is Jim Thorpe. The Hoosier native attended Notre Dame, was an Olympic gold medalist and went on to become the NFL’s first president.
"He was a role model and he was a Native American and he was dirt poor and yet he was able to make it to the pinnacle of success," said Lawrence Yarrell.
The Super Learning program will also provide students with the opportunity to participate in several Super Bowl-related activities.
