Michael Oher, the man who inspired the 2009 film The Blind Side, is headed to the Super Bowl once again.  Oher admits he isn’t a fan of the film, but he is a fan of the Tuohy’s.  Oher celebrated on field with the Touhy’s after the the Carolina Panther’s 49-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

The Tuohy’s adopted Oher when he was in high school and helped him work on his football talents.  He eventually went to college at Ole Miss on a football scholarship, and later went on to be an NFL first round draft pick.

This isn’t Oher’s first trip to the big game.  He already has a Super Bowl ring from when he played with the Baltimore Ravens back in 2012.  The Carolina Panthers will face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 on February 7th.

Oher posted a photo of himself with the Tuohy’s on Instagram after the game.  See the photo below, and read more on the story here.
