Channel 2 sports director Zach Klein sat down with McVay's parents, who talked about the many mentors who are part of their son's success, including some right here in Atlanta.
Tim and Cindy McVay are proud parents who still have their son's pictures and awards hanging on the wall. Now, their son and his team are in a position to win football's biggest game and hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
"There's nothing better than watching your own child live out their dreams," Cindy McVay said. "Makes my stomach kind of tingle. We'll be anxious and nervous -- but when we get a chance to see him, I calm down a bit. This is what he's worked for.”
"Are you able to enjoy the moment since what happened in New Orleans?" Klein asked.
"We're making sure we're enjoying every second," Cindy McVay said.
Sean McVay's grandfather, John, was the 49ers' general manager, and had five Super Bowl rings. His father played college football.
