Tennessee State University will continue a football legacy dating back to the first Super Bowl when the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos face off in Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7 in Santa Clara, California.

Former TSU offensive guard Robert Myers will be on the Denver squad when the two teams play in the NFL Championship game. The 6-foot-5, 326-pound rookie joined the Broncos’ active roster Dec. 30 and played in the AFC champions’ final regular-season game and each of their playoff wins.

“Tennessee State University has had a number of former players who have been in past Super Bowls dating back to the first one, and Myers’ continues this rich tradition,” said TSU President Glenda Glover. “Considering this is the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, it’s an extreme honor to have a former TSU athlete participating. It also speaks to our proud tradition as a University and as an HBCU.”

On Feb. 4, Glover will attend the 7th Annual John Wooten Leadership Awards in San Francisco where she will accept an award for the number of players TSU has sent to Super Bowls over the years. Those players include Hall of Famer Richard Dent, MVP of Super Bowl XX with the Chicago Bears; and Ed “Too Tall” Jones, who appeared in three Super Bowls as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
