CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- It has been quite an up and down journey for Cliff Avril of the Seattle Seahawks.

The standout defensive end from Clay High slogged through an 0-16 season as a member of the Detroit Lions as a rookie.

He's now in the Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks after signing a 2-year deal in the off-season.

"It was all about putting my pride aside and understanding the big picture which is getting to the Super Bowl," Avril said.

The Seahawks and Broncos kickoff tonight at 6:30 on FOX30.
