Army parachutist makes special Monday Night Football delivery

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ken Severin delivered the game ball from 5,000 feet before the Chiefs battled the Patriots on Monday Night Football.

Severin, who is in his second season with the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, dropped into Arrowhead Stadium by parachute with the ball.

It was Severin’s first Monday Night Football game, but the Golden Knights, which have two demonstration teams based in Fort Bragg, N.C., perform stunts at sporting events 10 to 20 times per year.
