Clemson’s Tee Higgins of Bengals had surprise for online gaming friend

There are benefits to being on the same team as wide receiver Tee Higgins even if you don’t play football.

Higgins helped Clemson win a national championship in his second season and will try to finish that same pattern Sunday night with the Cincinnati Bengals as they face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI (6:30 pm, NBC).

His online gaming friends, especially one, already feel like winners.

Higgins plays Call of Duty, a first-person shooter war game, and sometime does surprise giveaways. Before the AFC championship against the Kansas City Chiefs, for example, he handed out tickets.

Cincinnati resident Max Hulett, who has been playing Call of Duty with Higgins for a few months, already had tickets and said it was part of an anniversary celebration with his girlfriend. Higgins bought them plane tickets instead.

“I have been jumping up and down for two days!” Hulett posted on his Twitter account two days before the Bengals beat the Chiefs, 27-24, in overtime to earn a Super Bowl berth for the first time since the 1980s. “He found out me and my girl were driving for our anniversary to KC and upgraded us with flights. …great guy.”
