Thanksgiving is about family, food and football. For the second straight year, KNBC brought the three together for Roggin's Heroes Thanksgiving. Ten of the top high school football players in southern California showcase their skills and the strong family bonds that have gotten them to the top.
Kurt Scoby shares his journey of overcoming the tough odds life has thrown his way. From the loss of his mother to bouncing between foster homes, he's had to escape more than just rapid linebackers.
Cristian Solano recounts leading his school back to the glory of yesteryear, guiding San Fernando High School to their first city championship in more than 35 years. Meanwhile, his Mom would rather recount his childhood impersonations of Pee Wee Herman.
Plenty of laughs abound when the best of the best sit around our table. There's a budding bromance, an up-and-coming chef, a dance-off and more pepper than anybody's ever put on one piece of Thanksgiving turkey.
Sit back and enjoy an extra helping of a new holiday tradition. Time to fill your hearts and plates with Roggin's Heroes Thanksgiving.
