Hawaii (FOX19) -

Bengals Tyler Eifert is celebrating his first ever trip to the Pro Bowl by flipping the script and asking true heroes for their autographs. 

The NFL and Bengals released a video of the tight end asking American service members to sign a helmet during Pro Bowl festivities in Hawaii. 

The video shows service members signing the white and gold-striped helmet. You can hear Eifert say "I appreciate it, thank you."

It was a moment that was captured quickly, but a moment that shows why Cincinnati fans have grown fond of the former Notre Dame standout.

Eifert hauled in 13 TDs and totaled 615 receiving yards en route to his first Pro Bowl appearance this season. You can see Eifert on 'Team Irvin' on during the game on Sunday.
