The Dolphins head coach said that his uncle is a retired New York firefighter who was “instrumental” to Flores’ life and was the one who introduced him to football.

His uncle belonged to Ladder 118 — one of the first houses to respond to the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 and enter the buildings.
