Feel good story: 'Two of the best days of my life back to back'

Last Monday, we announced the winners of our Video of the Year contest. The winner of the high school division came out of Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, with their "Saguaro 2012 Motivational" submission. 

That video was produced by running backs coach/special teams coordinator/video coordinator Bryan Chesin. Here's the thing about Chesin, he sees more of a future for himself in that third title than the two it proceeds. Naturally, bringing home the gold in our contest was the a thrill. As he told us, it was one of the most exciting moments of his life. 

Well, the excitement level multiplied ten fold the very next day. 

On Tuesday, NFL Films called and offered him a job as an assistant producer. He's moving to New Jersey in a few weeks to help with the production of NFL Playbook and learn from some of the best producers in football. As his colleagues told him, "this is truly an opportunity you can't say no to". Chesin added, "Two of the best days of my life, back to back."

We wanted to pass along our congratulations to Coach Chesin. We hope this story continues to inspire many of you to work towards being the best in your chosen field.
