Chiefs Super Bowl LVII Win Earns Rings For The Ark-La-Tex
What a game. Super Bowl LVII was an incredible game all the way up to the final 2 minutes. There's a lot of grumbling about the timing of a penalty flag late in the game the essentially sealed the deal for the Kansas City Chiefs' 38-35 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. But without that last minute flag, this game was incredibly watchable.
Which was good news for football fans in the Ark-La-Tex, because even without the New Orleans Saints or Dallas Cowboys being in the game, there were local fingerprints all over the broadcast.
First, we need to mention that the game was on Fox, and that means Shreveport's Terry Bradshaw was all over the place. Pre-game, halftime, and post-game, the Shreveport native was all over TVs.
Then, Haughton's Dak Prescott was presented with the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award at the game. Which was basically a double-dip of localness, as West Monroe's Andrew Whitworth presented Dak with his award.
While Dak and Bradshaw can call the Ark-La-Tex home, they didn't get Super Bowl rings with the Chiefs' win. But these two Ark-La-Tex stars did.
Minden's L'Jarius Sneed scored his first Super Bowl ring with the win over the Eagles.
Sneed started the game at Defensive Back for KC, and played a large percentage of defensive snaps. He racked up tackles, and was involved in a couple of big plays through the night.
Another Ark-La-Tex player scoring a Super Bowl ring was Whitehouse, Texas' Patrick Mahomes.
The East Texas QB now has two Super Bowl rings in his relatively young career. Meaning he could challenge Terry Bradshaw for title of "Greatest Quarterback in Ark-La-Tex History" if he keeps this pace up.
