NAPLES, Fla.- The Miami Dolphins selected Naples resident Susie Eisenberg to represent the fans at the 2014 NFL Draft.
"I'm going to the draft!" Susie Eisneberg is the ultimate Miami Dolphins fan, but she never expected the team to recognize her for it.
"I was called by my ticket representative and she asked if I wanted to represent Miami Dolphins fans in the first round of the draft," she says. WINK News caught up with the season ticket holder of 30 years via skype, after she left Naples for Miami to gear up for the trip of a lifetime. "I did not even believe her. I was very excited," she says.
It's a night normally left for the football elite. Now a fan representing each NFL team will join the big wigs in New York City, taking the stage at Radio City Music Hall for one of the biggest nights in football.
"I'll be walking down the red carpet and handing Roger Goodell our first round draft pick's jersey, then after the Dolphins make their pick, I'll hand our selection his cap," she says.
The Miami Dolphins team and fans have become like an extended family to Eisenberg, who never misses a game.
She says she doesn't know what makes her stand out among the thousands of other dedicated Dolphins diehards, but does know this opportunity is a true touchdown.
"It's just a really big honor that they chose me as the fan to get to meet our new player, our first round pick, it's just an honor," she says.
