The Las Vegas Raiders are showing their appreciation for health care workers in a big way.
Lincoln Kennedy and Raymond Chester joined a virtual call with the four local heroes on Tuesday to deliver the news.
The healthcare workers are doctors Charlene Adrian, Orlando Ozir, and Nicholas Calica, and nurse Samantha Balsomo.
The four of them will be at the big game on Sunday, February 7th in Tampa, Florida.
Chester told the healthcare professionals, "We are honored to salute you guys for what you do. You guys work every day when the real bullets are flying, thank you."
Dr. Ozir said, "It's been a devastating past year. But this year, I have a secret. I've become a Raiders fan."
The four Intermountain Healthcare workers and local heroes will be joined by 7,500 other healthcare workers that have all been vaccinated as special guests of each of each of the NFL teams at the Super Bowl this weekend.
