"This is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me," she said.

Mosely is the NFL Play 60 Super Bowl contest winner and was a special correspondent for Good Morning America and getting to rub elbows with some of the greatest players at the game.

There was no hiding her excitement at meeting Roger Craig. And she didn't shy away from the tough questions either with Peyton Manning.

"What do you mean by your last rodeo?"

"No, no, no. You totally missed the point- rodeos," he responded.

She even got to embrace the NFL's first female coach, a personal inspiration for this young aspiring football coach.

All week, Mosely's sincerity and enthusiasm earned her high praise from Robin Roberts.
