Although football season has come to an end, Redhawks across campus are still tuned in to the game. Many students plan to tune in to the Superbowl on Sunday.

As the anticipation mounts and the weekend draws near, Redhawks across campus are gearing up for what is undoubtedly the most anticipated annual sporting extravaganza in America: the Super Bowl.

This year’s Super Bowl showdown features the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, kicking off at 5:30 p.m. in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday.

But this isn’t just any football game – Super Bowl LVIII has a special connection to Frisco ISD, as it shines a spotlight on talent nurtured within the district’s own football programs.

In 2018, Jay Ajayi, a Redhawk alum, hoisted the Lombardi Trophy with the Eagles. Now, it’s Lone Star High School graduate Nick Bolton taking the field for the Chiefs.

“I think it’s pretty cool that we’re seeing these guys in there because it shows the quality of football in Frisco, and puts Frisco on the map,” assistant football coach Aaron Watts said. “Anybody, whether they play for Liberty or Lone Star or any other schools in Frisco ISD, has a chance of making it all the way to the Super Bowl and being on the biggest stage in football.”

From organizing elaborate parties to fervently making predictions, students and staff are primed for a Sunday of football festivities, with many people having a favorite to win. 

“Every year for the Super Bowl my family invites all our family friends over and we turn the Super Bowl on,” sophomore Olivia Shea said. “Everyone brings a snack and we get to eat all the chips and stuff while we watch the commercials. The dads all wear jerseys and it’s just a super fun way to experience the Super Bowl together. Go 49ers!”

“I think the Chiefs are going to win because I’ve seen their plays before and they have a better chance of winning against the 49ers,” sophomore Avani Chinwan said. “They also have Travis Kelce on their team so I think they’re definitely going to beat the 49ers.”
