NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - Super Bowl XLV was certainly a nail biter with the Green Bay Packers scoring a 31 to 25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Monday morning, Niagara Falls native, James Starks, is waking up, basking in the football glory.

Starks supporters in Niagara Falls are also beaming Monday morning, after Sunday night's big win in Dallas.

Packers fans had plenty to cheer about in Niagara Falls after last nights big game.

That's because falls native James Starks is now a Super Bowl champion.

"Oh my gosh, it's amazing!" Amanda Flores was also excited to root for her friend.

Flores said, "I'm so happy for him and his whole family. I was texting his brother throughout the game and he said he's so ecstatic for him, and he said he was crying in the locker room as he was gearing up for the game."

Amanda says she went to Niagara Falls High School with Starks, and was a cheerleader at his football games.

Flores said, "He's one of my best friends; he's such a good guy, he deserves this more than anyone. He's such a good guy."

Starks, who is a former U.B. Bulls player, rushed 52 yards on 11 carries against the leagues toughest defense.

The Mayor of Niagara Falls says it was exciting to see Starks help the Packers beat the Steelers and take home the Lombardi Trophy.

Mayor Paul Dyster said, "You could not ask for a better role model for our young people of the City of Niagara Falls, and I could not be prouder of that young man."

Niagara Falls City Court Judge Angelo Morinello said, "It brings notoriety to Niagara Falls, were very proud."

Morinello was a very proud of his team and his hometowns' new Super Bowl champion.

So Starks went from being U.B.'s all time leading rusher to the NFL's leading playoff rusher this year.

When Starks is all done celebrating his big Super Bowl win, we hear the mayor of Niagara Falls might be giving Starks a key to the city. We'll keep you posted.
