Michigan high school basketball team adds wrong number to group text; the number ends up as Buccaneers’ Sean Murphy-Bunting

A high school basketball team in Michigan treated a group chat in order to communicate with each other. Which is a normal and common practice today.

Except for the Notre Dame Prep School in Pontiac, Michigan, one of the numbers in the group text was a wrong number. Except that wrong number belonged to Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting.

Murphy-Bunting then handed his phone over to Rob Gronkowski, who gave it to Richard Sherman and then Leonard Fournette.

Then Tom Brady hopped on.

The call ended with Murphy-Bunting, a Michigan native, wishing the boys well on their season. Pretty classy gesture by members of the Super Bowl Champions to make what was an honest mistake into a really great story.
