There is a Central Coast connection to this year's Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers.
After a tip from a viewer, KSBY confirmed that Aaron's father, Ed, grew up on the Central Coast and played football at Lompoc High school. Ed graduated from Lompoc High in 1973 after starring as a lineman for the Braves' football team where he was an All-League pick. After graduation, Ed played football at Chico State and on a semiprofessional football team in California.
Aaron is the middle of Ed and his wife's three children. Sunday, Aaron completed 24 of his 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns leading the Green Bay Packers to a 31-25 win over Pittsburgh in Super Bowl 45. It was the Packers' first NFL title since 1997.
