SHELLMAN, GA (WALB) - The city of Shellman showed up to cheer for their hometown star Thomas Davis. Davis started in his first super bowl this year, despite having a fractured arm.

The crowd had quite the setup for Super Bowl 50.

The entire city of Shellman couldn't be more proud of Davis.

"This is a very momentous occasion and so we're just here to celebrate and enjoy the moment and hopefully he will come back to Shellman with a Super Bowl ring," said family friend Ricketta McCoy.

The NFL man of the year also made his first pro bowl in 2016 after a career year with the NFC champs.
