A central Texas couple will be watching for their grandson in this Sunday's Super Bowl.

Football has a long history in the Texas family of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

His grandparents, Ray and Virginia Akins, married more than 60 years ago.

Ray coached high school football for more than 20 years, and the akins' son, Marty, was an all-american quarterback at Texas in the early 70's.

Now Brees has made it to the big league.

The 31-year-old's grandparents say playing football was a skill Brees was born with.
