With the NFL Playoffs wrapping up, we have seen a lot of history made throughout this year’s season. This year’s Super Bowl will take place on Sunday, February 12th at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. 

The Kansas City Chiefs will be facing the Philadelphia Eagles, both coming in with a 16-3 record and an offensive-loaded team, there’s no doubt this will be a high-scoring game.

Greeley West has many people from different backgrounds, meaning we get to see many of the sports teams being represented here at West.

Junior Jace Lowrey states, “The Eagles are going to win because they have a healthy QB unlike the Chiefs, where Patrick Mahomes’s ankle is still not yet at 100% … With all the adversity Jalen Hurts faced, now is the perfect time for him to silence the haters.”

With Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes starting at the QB position, it will be the first time we see 2 black QBs starting in a Super Bowl. “Hopefully this can spark an interest for colored people to compete in football at the QB position,” Junior David Lovato said.

With it also being Black History Month, we will get to see Rihanna perform this Super Bowl’s halftime show. Many fans are excited to see her perform at this year’s halftime show, including Junior Cooper Smith who says, “I’m just glad to be able to see her perform as she has rejected the halftime performance before… she won’t disappoint, that’s for sure.”
