Hometown hero Ryan Tannehill brought the town of Big Spring together yesterday to watch the AFC Championship game.

According to CBS 7, the town gathered at different places, but superfan Davis Adams could be found with some of the town at Wild West Wingz.

“It does a lot. That way, especially Big Spring, people do not usually know where Big Spring is since it is so small. People always ask where is Big Spring, Texas. They do not know. It is a small community, but they have good athletes,” said Adams.

Ryan Tannehill played football at Big Spring High and is now the quarterback for the Tennessee Titans in the NFL.

Even though Tennessee did not win the championship game to go to the Super Bowl, fans were still proud of Tannehill's performance.

One thing is for sure, the town of Big Spring will continue to support Tannehill next season, and beyond.
