For the third-straight year, a former UConn football player is a Super Bowl champion.
After tackle Will Beatty reached the top of the mountain with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018 and safety Obi Melifonwu won a ring with the New England Patriots in 2019, fullback Anthony Sherman helped the Kansas City Chiefs come back from a 20-10 deficit to win Super Bowl LIV against the San Francisco 49ers.
In true fullback fashion, Sherman did not record a carry or reception in the Super Bowl, but delivered a handful of key blocks, including this one that led to Damien Williams’ game-sealing touchdown

Sherman, who played at UConn from 2007-2010, is widely regarded as one of the game’s best fullbacks and made a Pro Bowl appearance in 2018.
Sherman is not the only Chiefs team member with a UConn connection. Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo coached at UConn from 1987-1991, serving as the Huskies’ defensive coordinator for his final three years in Storrs.
