GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb presented some teen athletes with an honorary ESPY Award on Good Morning America
Ty Koehn and Jack Kocon made national headlines with their show of friendship during a high school baseball game in Minnesota.
With a bid for the state tournament on the line, Ty struck out his buddy, Jack. Instead of celebrating with his team, Ty, a pitcher for Mounds View High School, hugged his friend, the batter for Totino Grace.
"In 20 years I won't remember the score of the game but I'll remember what Ty did for me," Jack told Robin Roberts on GMA.
Both friends are NFL fans, cheering for rival teams. Ty Koehn likes the Packers and Jack Kocon likes the Vikings.
Both students were shocked when Packers WR Randall Cobb sent them a message announcing they would receive an honorary ESPY.
"Thank you for being a great example for all of us," Cobb said.
The ESPYS air Wednesday, July 18 at 7 p.m. on WBAY.
