PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For Kyle Roche of Burlington New Jersey, Josh Huff’s franchise record 107-yard kick return touchdown had extra meaning. It meant a brand new 2014 Ford F-150 pick-up truck thanks to Quality Plus Ford Stores Opening Kick Off contest.

“Probably within about 30 seconds,” Roche said. “My phone started ringing. I got, probably, 50 calls in a row.”
“I was excited enough that Huff ran 107 yards back for a touchdown and I didn’t know that I was selected for it,” Roche continued. “I knew I registered for it, but I couldn’t believe it.”
Roche, who works for a tent company doing construction, said he could really use the truck especially in the winter. After thanking Quality Plus Ford Stores, Mike Quick and Merrill Reese, the Philadelphia Eagles, and SportsRadio 94WIP, Roche had some extra thanks for Huff.
“I’ll give him [Huff] a ride in that truck any day,” said Roche.
