CMU’s Eric Fisher Shares In Chief Championship [Video]
A couple of Michigan residents earned Super Bowl rings last night with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Two offensive linemen with Michigan roots helped the Kansas City Chiefs lift the Lombardi Trophy Sunday night at Super Bowl LIV.
Long time starting left tackle Eric Fisher from Central Michigan played a key role in keeping Patrick Mahomes safe during the final stretch in the Chiefs come-from-behind victory.
Fisher, who is from Rochester in the Detroit area, finally bought Mahomes some time, after he was harassed by the San Francisco defensive rush for much of the first half.
That extra time made all the difference on the fourth quarter when Mahomes tossed two touchdown passes to lead the Chiefs to victory.
Also on the roster was former starting right tackle Andrew Wylie from Midland and Eastern Michigan. Wylie was injured down the stretch and couldn't play in the game, but he certainly helped the team celebrate. Wylie started 11 games for the Chiefs before being hurt.
And we musn't forget defensive lineman Frank Clark, who played his college ball at the University of Michigan. Clark, who's originally from Cleveland, Ohio, made several big plays for the Chiefs.
And back up Chiefs backup quarterback Chad Henne also is a Michigan graduate.
