Following his team’s victory in Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia Eagles superstar defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was honored in a big way by those in his hometown of Yazoo City.

He told reporters on Tuesday that the town named the longest street after him, Fletcher Cox Road.

That’s pretty special right there.

Cox and the Eagles could be even better than they were in 2017. It’s a big year coming up for the Philly crew, which is as talented as any team in the NFL. One wonders what Yazoo City will do for Cox if he and the Eagles repeat.
