If you want a first-hand look at what the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers will be playing for this Sunday, visit The Solana, a senior living community in Cinco Ranch.

Football great and Solana resident Tom Bettis is displaying his Super Bowl IV ring this week for residents to enjoy. Bettis earned the ring and an AFL Championship ring when he coached the Kansas City Chiefs. Prior to his coaching career, Bettis also played as a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears. Following his time in the league as a player, Bettis spent 30 years as a coach, working for the Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Cardinals and even the Houston Oilers.

When asked how he thinks his teammates, coaches and team owners would remember him, Bettis says, “I hope they would all say about the same thing: He played all-out every play, was solid and dependable.”
