As I mentioned two weeks ago before the conference championship games, Super Bowl XLIX would feature a Big 33 alum for the 49th straight game. Yes, there’s never been a Super Bowl without a player from what I consider America’s best all-star football game that is played annually in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The streak started in Super I with the Green Bay Packers Herb Adderley, who played in the first Big 33 Classic in 1957, representing Northeast High School in Philadelphia. The streak continues today with three players – New England‘s Darrelle Revis (Aliquippa HS, Pennsylvania) and Seattle‘s Garry Gilliam (Milton Hershey HS, Pennsylvania) and Jordan Hill (Steelton-Highspire HS, Pennsylvania).
