For a football player, getting the opportunity to play in the sport’s biggest game, the Super Bowl, is the ultimate goal and, for some, a once in a lifetime event. But for some Good Counsel football alums, it has become an annual occurrence.
Next Sunday, two Good Counsel alums, Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Keandre Jones and Los Angeles Rams’ safety Blake Countess, will play in Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles. 2022 marks the fourth consecutive year that a former Good Counsel player will participate in the Super Bowl.
“The GC (Good Counsel) community is completely bursting with pride over (having two players) in the Super Bowl,” Good Counsel Athletic Director Steve Howes told MyMCM. “The fact that we’ve had this unreal run of our alums being in the Super Bowl is amazing.”
Howes added, “We will have a Super Bowl champion one way or the other.”
WDVM reporter Alex Flum talked to legendary former Good Counsel head coach Bob Milloy, Maryland’s all-time winningest football coach, about the rare feat.
It was great chatting with Bob Milloy about this today.
