Greg Butler in Arizona asks: What was it like to see the six Super Bowl trophies for the first time?Jason Worilds: I took a picture and sent it to all of my friends. It was something special. To come from where I came from, a small town, it's not something we get to see every day. For me to take a picture of that and send it to my family and friends, I think it meant a lot to everybody.
Pat Garrett in New Jersey asks: Did seeing the Super Bowl trophies make your drive to win one even stronger?Jason Worilds:Definitely. Why else do you play this game? Why do spend all those hours, days and months if you are not trying to win the Super Bowl. Seeing those trophies let me know what I am working for is a reality and it motivated me even more to put my all into this.
Jesse Hoss asks: Other than football, are there any other pro sports you follow and if so who are your favorite teams?Jason Worilds: I am an Orlando Magic fan. I don't follow basketball like I used to. I was a huge Penny Hardaway fan years ago.
Ross Fager in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania asks: As a child did you dream of playing in the NFL and what team did you dream of playing for if you made it to the NFL one day?Jason Worilds: I did. I never thought about playing for a specific team. I just always wanted to win a Super Bowl; that was my thing. I always think about the great players and how most of them are remembered by how many Super Bowl championships they have. I wanted to be great and I know to do that you have to win Super Bowls.
Dan Morris in Rhode Island asks: What is your first impression of the City of Pittsburgh, which was just voted the most livable city in America?Jason Worilds: I didn't get a chance to see much right away because we were doing football stuff all day. It's a clean city and the people are really friendly and nice. There are some nice buildings, kind of old and historical. I am looking forward to seeing it.
