A text to a wrong number landed a high school basketball team a fortuitous FaceTime call with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the defending Super Bowl champions.

Student Vinny Tartaglia added the number to the group chat for the freshman basketball team at Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy in Pontiac, thinking it was his teammate’s, according to NBC affiliate WDIV of Detroit.

“Y’all meant to add me to this?” the person Tartaglia inadvertently messaged asked. “You know who I am?” The person then revealed his identity.

“I’m Sean Murphy-Bunting,” the Michigan native and cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wrote before sending along a selfie of himself in the team’s locker room and then initiating a FaceTime call from the Bucs’ locker room.
