Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Bucs FaceTime with High School Basketball Team After Number Mixup
According to reports, a high school basketball team in Michigan got the surprise of a lifetime after accidentally entering the wrong number into a group chat. They ended up inviting a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their call and even got a moment with Tom Brady.
Reports say that it all started when a Michigan high school basketball team was trying to add one of their teammates to a group text. They inadvertently added Sean-Murphy Bunting, cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to the group per the report.
When the boys on the team didn't buy that Bunting was who he was, a FaceTime call began. Much to their surprise, the team was greeted by the NFL corner back hanging out in his locker. But, this isn't where things would end for the lucky group of high schoolers.
Bunting ended up introducing the team to some pretty notable members of the Bucs including Rob Gronkowski, Leonard Fournette, and Richard Sherman. After everything, the basketball team had one final request.
