The two teams who will be playing in Super Bowl LVIII have been decided, and that means that after a long regular season and a tough postseason, it’s now time for teams to relax and …wait, no. While we all sit back and think about the party that is the Super Bowl, the two teams involved still have to focus on winning the biggest game of the year. And among the players in that game, there will be some from our communities.
Here are the Latino players that will be present in Super Bowl LVIII, which will be played on Sunday, February 11, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on CBS and can be streamed via Paramount Plus.
Isiah Pacheco, Running back, Kansas City Chiefs
Running back Isiah Pacheco, of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent, finished the season with 205 rushing attempts for 935 yards and 44 receptions for 244 yards. He’s so far had 63 rushing attempts for 254 yards this postseason and 3 rushing TDS.
Jon Feliciano, Center, San Francisco 49ers
Jon Feliciano, of Puerto Rican descent, anchored the 49ers’ offensive line that came up big against the Lions in the NFC Championship game. Centers don’t have stats that can be counted, but Feliciano is a huge part of the reason they’ve made it so far this season.
Fred Warner, Linebacker, San Francisco 49ers
Fred Warner, of Panamanian and Mexican descent, finished the season with 132 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and four interceptions. He’s been credited with 20 total tackles so far this postseason.
