Miles Sanders & the Eagles guaranteed the longest streak in Super Bowl history, but he’s not alone
Written by: Billy Splain on January 29, 2023.
We don’t get tired of saying it. “It’s a streak that began when the first Super Bowl was played. Herb Adderly from the Green Bay Packers began that streak, and since that day no Super Bowl has been played without at least one PSFCA Big 33 Alumni being on the field!
Miles Sanders (Woodland Hills) electrified the 2016 Big 33 Pennsylvania crowd in 2016. Sanders caught a pass out of the backfield on Pennsylvania’s first play of the game, resulting in a 21-yard touchdown reception. He later added a five-yard touchdown run and a 19-yard scoring scamper. He finished the night with six rushes for 67 yards and three total touchdowns. Team Pennsylvania went on to win the game by a score of 26-14. Not surprisingly, Sanders was named the MVP.
And now, he gets a chance to electrify the world with his talents when he represents the Big 33 in Super Bowl 57. But, he’s not alone.
Joining him will be:
Chad Henne, Wilson-West Lawn. Chad played in the 2004 game that was won in a thriller by the Ohio team. Henne is a quarterback with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brett Veach, Mount Carmel. Brett played for PA in the 1997 game won by the PA squad, 21-20. Brett is the General Manager for the Chiefs.
Frank Clark, Glenville (OH). Frank played on the 2011 Ohio team that decimated the PA team 50-14. Frank is a defensive end for the Chiefs.
Henne, Veach and Clark are three time representatives. Herb Adderly, Roy Winston, Joe Montana, Jim Ritcher, Mark Kelso, Jim Kelly, Ty Law, Dan Kopek, Frank Reich have PLAYED in four Super Bowls. Reich also coached in Philly’s win in SB 52 so he’s appeared in 5. Russ Grimm has appeared in 6 (4 as a player and 2 as coach, 1 with Steelers and 1 with Cards)
