Seven weeks after helping his team secure a Lombardi Trophy, Mike Evans hoisted another shiny, celebrated memento Friday.
The veteran Bucs receiver was awarded a key to the city by his hometown of Galveston, Texas, during a small parade along the city seawall. Mayor Craig Brown declared March 26 to be Mike Evans Day in Galveston.
“This is one of the best honors that I will ever receive,” said Evans, who was born in Galveston and attended Ball High.
“The people that I care about, the city that I love honoring me like this, it means the world to me and this is definitely one of the best accomplishments that I’ve had in my lifetime.”
