A South Side teen got a super surprise from his new friend on the Chicago Bears Saturday.

Rookie linebacker J.T. Thomas surprised 14-year-old Anthony Grandberry at his church with two tickets to Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Thomas befriended the teen in December after meeting at a holiday party at Soldier Field.

Grandberry suffers from severe epilepsy and learning disabilities.

Thomas says he has a special place in his heart for the teen because the linebacker has a younger brother with autism.
