Q: In Sunday’s Super Bowl match-up, there will be two players with a Kansas connection: Cary Williams of the Baltimore Ravens and Michael Wilhoite of the San Francisco 49ers. Which university in Kansas did these two players attend?
A: Washburn University in Topeka
Michael Wilhoite, in his first year with the San Francisco 49ers, is a back-up linebacker. A 25-year old native of Topeka, Wilhoite was a three-year captain at Washburn University, where he earned honorable mention all-MIAA honors as a senior after recording 81 tackles.
Cary Williams is a starting cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens. He’s in his fifth NFL season and third with the Ravens. He had four interceptions this year, including one he returned 63 yards for a touchdown. He also played for the Washburn Ichabods.
So, whoever wins on Sunday, Washburn University will have a Super Bowl winning alumnus.
