For the fourth-straight year, a former UConn football player is a Super Bowl champion.

Andrew Adams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 to win Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay, Florida on Sunday night. He defeated fellow UConn alumnus and current Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman, who helped Kansas City win Super Bowl LIV last season.

Adams joins Sherman, lineman Will Beatty (2018 with Philadelphia Eagles) and Obi Melifonwu (2019 with New England Patriots) as a recent champion.

As the second string safety, Adams did not record a tackle in the Super Bowl, but stepped up mightily throughout the playoffs after playing sparingly in the regular season. After just two total tackles in the regular season, Adams tallied six tackles in the postseason including a five-tackle (three solo) performance with a pass breakup after starter Antoine Winfield left the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers due to injury.
