NYACK -

Football fans in Rockland County celebrated Monday morning after two Nyack natives took the win in last night's Super Bowl.

Nyack-born identical twins Jason and Devin McCourty, of the New England Patriots, made history by being the first set of twins to ever play in a Super Bowl.

Local fans say their rise to Super Bowl stardom has given the community a while new sense of pride.

The Patriots went on to defeat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 Sunday night.

Nyack is also the hometown of other NFL stars including Miami Dolphins defensive end Terrence Fede and Indianapolis Colts running back Ryan Grant.
