The National Football League announced this week that 11-year old San Francisco 49ers fan and San Jose, California native, Marlo Mosley chosen as this year’s NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid. Former San Francisco 49ers running back and three-time Super Bowl champion Roger Craig surprised Mosley with the news on-field at Levi’s Stadium before the 49ers game on January 3 against St. Louis. Mosley will return to Levi’s Stadium on Sunday, February 7 and hand the game ball to a game official moments before kickoff of Super Bowl 50 on CBS.

Hundreds of young fans nationwide entered the NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest Presented by Danimals online at NFLRUSH.com. To be eligible, Mosley pledged to be active for 60 minutes a day and submitted a video showcasing her passion for “football and eating healthy.” Mosley also participated in interviews and ultimately received the most votes among three finalists on NFLRUSH.com. Mosley marks the ninth NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid.

An avid 49ers fan and wide receiver for her Pop Warner football team, Mosley’s “dream is to become an NFL head coach because I’m a trailblazer and I would love to share my passion for football at the professional level,” she stated in her submission video.

During the week leading up to Super Bowl 50, Mosley will visit NFL Experience Driven by Hyundai – the epicenter for NFL fans in the San Francisco Bay Area during Super Bowl week, attend Super Bowl Opening Night Fueled by Gatorade and visit Super Bowl City Presented by Verizon amongst other events.

The two other NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest Presented by Danimals finalists, Devlyn Williams, 12, from Mississippi and William Mollow, 11, from Connecticut will receive NFL PLAY 60 prize packs and two tickets to a 2016 regular season game.
