Super Bowl LIV between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will be very special for new Spartanburg High School head coach Mark Hodge, who was named as the Vikings new leader about a week ago.

Hodge will have three former players in Miami from his most recent head coaching jobs at Chapman and Carolina high schools. Hodge coached 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during his time at Chapman. At Carolina High, he coached 49ers defensive tackle DJ Jones and Chiefs defensive tackle Devaroe Lawrence.
