Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers have developed a relationship with the football team at Paradise High School since a tragic fire destroyed the school and most of the town. And while the 49ers season is over, the relationship is not.

Shanahan gave Paradise coach Rick Prinz two tickets to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

This is a really cool gesture on the part of Shanahan and the 49ers.

Parts of California, including Paradise, still have a lot of rebuilding to do after the fires ravaged both Northern and Southern California in November.

This will provide a much needed respite for a very worthy person.
