Sports

There are a lot of great stories coming out of Atlanta this week surrounding the Super Bowl and there’s one that has everybody talking. 

The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will face each other in Super Bowl 53 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday in Atlanta.

The Rams Coach Sean McVay and his quarterback Jared Goff will try to knock off the dynasty of the Patriots Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. 

Let’s start with the coaches: The Patriots’ Bill Belichick 66 years old. The Rams Sean McVay just 33. Belichick, going for his sixth Super Bowl title, McVay the youngest ever to coach in the Super Bowl. 

Both are great minds of the game and both ready to take home the Vince Lombardi trophy.

“I solely focus on trying to win the game against an excellent team that’s been doing it as well as anybody over the past handful years, said McVay.

“Sean as a head coach is responsible for the overall team. He’s done a great job and they are a very good team in all three phases of the game,” Belichick said.

Then there are the quarterbacks. The Patriots’ Tom Brady, 41 years of age and maybe the greatest of all time.

“My role is to play quarterback, that is where my energy is focused. That is probably the only thing I can do well for this team, ” Brady said.

And for the Rams, Jared Goff at the age of 24 was just 7 years old when Brady won his first Super Bowl.

“Tremendous player and a guy that I have so much respect for doing it for so long, but I’ll be looking forward to playing their defense, just like I’m sure he will be looking forward to playing ours,” says Goff.

By the way, Rams Coach Sean McVay who is a native of Atlanta, was a sophomore playing his high school football here in Georgia when Brady and Belichick won their first Super Bowl together.
