Former Army players Christiansen, Toth headed to Super Bowl

Patrick Mahomes’ scramble.

The (Travis and Jason) Kelce Bowl.

Jalen Hurts, the youngest quarterback to start in a Super Bowl.

All top storyline the next weeks.

An under-the-radar story is one former Army football player and West Point graduate will leave State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. as a Super Bowl champion.

Two-year Army football captain Cole Christiansen is a member of the Chiefs practice squad and has appeared in one game for Kansas City (vs. the Bills in Week 6). Former Army tackle and fourth-year NFL pro Brett Toth has spent the season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list following knee surgery.

It will be the first time a former Army player and current NFL roster member will be on the winning side of the Super Bowl.

Both Mike Sullivan and Tony Coaxum, former Army defensive backs, were coaches on Super Bowl winning teams. Sullivan was a Giants wide receivers and quarterbacks coach for Super Bowl XLII and XLVI, both over the New England Patriots.

Coaxum was an assistant special teams coordinator for the Denver Broncos in their Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers.
