(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Mustangs have been preparing for what could be a Super Bowl for the ages.
The mighty Kansas City Chiefs and their stellar offense face the high-flying and well-rounded Philadelphia Eagles. The stage is now set for Superbowl 57.
Both teams truly represent the best of their respective conferences as both were the number one seeded team in this year’s playoffs.
The Eagles cruised to Super Bowl appearance, while the Chiefs have been riddled with injuries to key receivers and superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
LRHS sophomore Thomas Huggins said, “I’m not really worried about Mahomes injury affecting his performance. I think the Chiefs are going to win.”
In the National Football Conference (NFC) championship game, the Eagles confidently handled the San Francisco 49ers 31-7. Mustang Eagle supporters are riding this confidence into the big game.
“I am cautiously optimistic. The Eagles can win they just can’t be too overconfident,” said sophomore Jude Limon.
The Eagles have opened as slight favorites over the Chiefs, but if the playoffs have proven anything, you can never count out Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes led the Chiefs to a 23-20 AFC Championship Game win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Another interesting aspect of this Super Bowl is that it will be the first to feature siblings facing each other. Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Chiefs, will be matching up against his brother Jason Kelce, an offensive lineman for the Eagles.
LRHS graduate Austin Reiter has experience in the Super Bowl as he played with the Chiefs during their 2019 championship win, and he will be on the team’s practice squad for the game in Arizona this year.
The stage has been set and both teams will square off in Arizona in Super Bowl 57 on February 12. Only time will tell who the victor will be, and whose name will be etched in NFL history forever.
