Detroit’s Brandon Graham was a hero for the Philadelphia Eagles in their 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

And he got a hero’s reception on Tuesday during a Detroit City Council meeting at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center.

Graham, 29, who graduated from Detroit Crockett High School and later starred at the University of Michigan, was presented with a Spirit of Detroit Award by council member Andre L. Spivey.

Graham’s strip-sack of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady helped preserve the Eagles’ lead and eventual victory in the Super Bowl.
