As far as post-Super Bowl celebrations go, one Port Allen neighborhood is still flying high!
Folks in the Courtland Village Apartments are proud to say the Saints' cornerback Tracy Porter grew up there.
Porter was a hero in Sunday night's showdown--A pick-six for 74 yards sealed the Saints’ 31- 17 Super Bowl victory over the Colts.
Some of Porter’s life-long buddies say it seems like only yesterday when they were tossing footballs to each other in the street.
But, seeing him as a world champion doesn't come as a surprise.
