WATCH: NFL Great Brett Favre Surprises Marine Vet With Super Bowl Tickets
Super Bowl champion quarterback Brett Favre gave a Marine veteran the ultimate Super Bowl surprise Saturday on Fox & Friends.
Jonathan Yellowhair, who was awarded a Pat Tillman Foundation scholarship, served four years in the Marines.
The foundation was established following Tillman's death in 2004, when the former Arizona Cardinal was killed by friendly fire as an Army Ranger in Afghanistan.
Favre, who was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2016, surprised Yellowhair Saturday with two tickets to this Sunday's big game.
Favre said that he played against Tillman several times and that he has tremendous respect for him.
"I remember him leaving to go serve and thinking, I don't know if I could do that whether I played football or not," he said.
He also wished Yellowhair good luck at Sunday's game, saying that it can become a "big circus."
Yellowhair said receiving the tickets from Favre was incredible, although he didn't root for him as a Cardinals fan.
