JACKSONVILLE, AR -- A happy homecoming for a man raised right here in central Arkansas.

For the first time he's coming home a Super Bowl champion.

Clinton McDonald of the Seattle Seahawks is from Jacksonville.

He and the rest of the Seahawks dismantled the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl a few weeks ago.

On Friday night, he showed up at his alma mater Jacksonville High where his dad received an honor during the boy's basketball game.

We caught up with McDonald to talk about his big win.

"Jacksonville's been treating me good ever since I've been here," he said. "It's been a long road to travel to get to this point. Jacksonville has been behind me 100 percent. I really appreciate that."
