Who Will Be Super Bowl 55's Unsung Hero


For as long as I can remember Super Bowls in my lifetime, their was always that one unsung hero that rose to the occasion during the big game. Whether on the winning side or losing side these athletes made a name for themselves at least for that night. Some moments will live on in history, some players are house hold names while others became house hold names for one night. I remember, as well as Giants fans, the David Tyree helmet catch or the Antwaan Randle El touchdown pass, or even Chris Hogan's play (did you know he use to play lacrosse?) along with the commentary that came along with his play. Let's run through some of the most recent unsung hero's as well as taking the poll on who you think will be tonight's hero.
