The Super Bowl! (As in…Super Bowl XLVII…or #47) - February 1, 2013

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?

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.
