Eufaula has presence in 2nd straight Super Bowl

EUFAULA, Ala. (AP) — This southeast Alabama town will again have a presence in the Super Bowl.

Rookie linebacker Courtney Upshaw will play for Baltimore Sunday against San Francisco. Last year another former Eufaula High standout Jerrel Jernigan was a rookie return man for the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

Eufaula Mayor Jack Tibbs says his town of about 13,000 residents is "known for our fishing, but we're quickly becoming known for our football."

Eufaula held a parade last July to honor three former Eufaula athletes who won titles. Upshaw was defensive MVP of Alabama's BCS championship game win last January. Jernigan got a Super Bowl ring and Terran Condrey helped Baylor win a national title in women's basketball.

Tibbs says the town will likely have another parade even if the Ravens lose.
