Former Army LB Cole Christiansen Super Bowl champ for 2nd time

Cole Christiansen’s effort may not show up in the boxscore but he played a pivotal part in the former Army linebacker and the Chiefs’ second straight Super Bowl win.

Christiansen was in the middle of the Chiefs’ special teams turning point of the game. The two-year Army football captain, tackled 49ers punt returner Ray-Ray McCloud, who was attempting to recover a punt that was touched by one of his teammates, in the third quarter.

Chiefs defensive back Jaylen Watson recovered the fumble and celebrated with Christiansen and his teammates. The Chiefs would score their first touchdown on the game’s next play and build momentum into a frenzy finish that ended in overtime with a Kansas City 25-19 victory.

Christiansen is a Super Bowl champion for the second time. He’s the only former Army football player to win a Super Bowl as an active player. Army football alum Mike Sullivan and Tony Coaxum earned Super Bowl rings as coaches. Christiansen was active for all three Chiefs postseason games this season. He was named the Chiefs’ special teams player of the game in Kansas City’s postseason-opening win over the Bills, making two tackles.
