Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Mike Strachan earned himself a spot on the active roster with a strong showing during the preseason that included plenty of hype.
A native of the Bahamas, Strachan got a wholesome surprise from the Good Morning Football crew, who partnered with Bahamasair to get plane tickets for Strachan’s parents to attend the Colts’ Week 4 road game against the Miami Dolphins at the Hard Rock Stadium.
“It don’t get better than that.”

Strachan noted that his parents have never seen him play football in person. Even from high school, Strachan has never had his parents in the stands to watch him play.
“No, never. From high school, they sent me over and they made so many sacrifices. That’s the way it was so they were not able to watch me play,” Strachan said.
That will all change on Oct. 3 when Strachan’s parents will get a round trip from the Bahamas to Miami to watch his son play at the Hard Rock Stadium.
