The team at Michigan's Notre Dame Prep wanted to add a friend to a group chat but entered the wrong number, and messaged Sean Murphy-Bunting. That text turned into a FaceTime call with the Buccaneers.

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martinez. Texting the wrong person can lead to some interesting situations. The basketball team at Michigan's Notre Dame Prep tried adding their friend Luca to a group chat but accidentally entered the wrong number, messaging Tampa Bay Buccaneers football player Sean Murphy-Bunting. That text turned into a FaceTime call with the team, with the kids talking to stars such as Leonard Fournette, Mike Evans and even a goat - or, as most people know him, the GOAT - Tom Brady. It's MORNING EDITION.
