Fourteen-year-old Kyle Smith and friends David and Victor Rudd, both 12, shared frozen yogurt and football stories with Indianapolis Colts receiver Austin Collie last week.

Smith won the honor in a drawing at Marina Middle School’s Family Jam fundraiser. The teen, his friends and his parents Jodi and Parveen Lal met the NFL star at Rockin’ Frog Frozen Yogurt Thursday.

Collie chatted with the kids about what it’s like playing football, both as an Oak Ridge Trojan and a starting NFL receiver, while roughly a dozen other kids hovered nearby, gobbling frozen yogurt and sneaking glances.

The prize was arranged by Rockin’ Frog Frozen Yogurt co-owner Maria Thomas and friends of the Collie family.
