Some high school students in Pontiac got the surprise of their lives when they texted the wrong number and found themselves FaceTiming with one of football’s biggest stars.

The boys’ freshmen basketball team at Notre Dame Prep were on the FaceTime call with Super Bowl champion Tom Brady after one of the guys put the wrong number in their group text.

“That was fun,” Brady told ESPN. “That was really fun. It was really good to see all those young kids hyped up.”

School counselor P. Jason Whalen, whose son is on the basketball team, dished about the whole thing on Twitter.
