Niagara Falls native and former UB star James Starks rushed for 52 yards against the league's toughest defense Sunday night. We caught up with his family on Monday. Some of them had just got back from the big game.

Starks' brother, Dale Stewart, said, "It was just a nice experience for the whole family to be out there and watch this. It's like a once in a lifetime thing."

Starks' uncle, Wayne Flynn, said, "Oh man, everybody was excited here at the school. And when we came in we saw the smiles on the student's faces and facility knowing that we know James and that he's from Niagara Falls High School and he won."

Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster says he'll be giving Starks the key to the city when he gets back from the Super Bowl celebrations.
