Cliff Avril goes from 0-16 to Super Bowl XLVIII
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.
