Jamie Silva, Colts Head to Super Bowl

New, 5 comments

If you have no rooting interest in this year's Super Bowl, consider rooting for the Indianapolis Colts and former BC All-American FS Jamie Silva. Silva is a reserve defensive back and special teamer for the AFC Champions. This year marks the tenth straight year that a BC alumni will be on a Super Bowl team roster.

The last BC Eagles to win a Super Bowl were Chris Snee and Mathias Kiwanuka on the Super Bowl XLII Champion New York Giants.

Not only is this year's Super Bowl being played in an ACC stadium (Sun Life Stadium nee Joe Robbie Stadium), but there are also several former ACC players on this year's Super Bowl rosters. In all, eleven players from ACC schools are on a Super Bowl roster, including 3 from Georgia Tech and 3 from Miami.
