NFL sends golden footballs to St. X for Super Bowl 50
In honor of Sunday’s Super Bowl 50, the NFL has sent golden footballs to every high school that has produced a player that has played in a Super Bowl. For St. X, 3 footballs were sent. They are currently sitting in the front hallway with the trophies.
The three football players are Bob Talamini, Mo Moorman and Will Wolford. Talamini played in Super Bowl III with the New York Jets and defeated the Baltimore Colts 17-6 in Miami. Moorman played in Super Bowl IV with the Kansas City Chiefs and defeated the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 in New Orleans. Wolford played in three Super Bowls (XXV, XXVI and XXVII).
Each of the footballs has a card with it which says,
The National Football League honors Saint Xavier High School and it’s role in developing and supporting the career of Mo Moorman who was part of Super Bowl History.
Football has always been about more than wins and loses. The game teaches lessons that last a lifetime. Through your football program, your school is building men of high character by instilling values in your student athletes. The NFL is grateful to you and your community, and honored to partner with you in making champions on and off the field. Your school’s name will be listed on the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll.
Integrity – Respect – Resiliency – Responsibility to Team
The Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will kick off Sunday at 6:30 ET in San Francisco for Super Bowl 50.
