Officials say with their Super Bowl win the Eagles and Swoop have been positive role models to the kids and the entire community by teaching them an important lesson about working hard.

"Swoop represents a team that has represented the Delaware Valley very well. I think it's also about excitement for the end of the year but also he represents something where hard work pays off and that's important to us as a school too," said Matthew Bradley, head of Friends School Mullica Hill.
