Super Bowl LIV is a culmination of the NFL's 100th season. The league opened the Super Bowl with a star-studded commercial that led to a young player taking the game ball from 97-year-old Virginia McCaskey, the Chicago Bears' owner, and bringing it to midfield.
The young player carrying the ball was Bunchie Young. He is from the Los Angeles area and not even a teenager yet. And, yes, he is that good at football.
Among the past and current NFL stars in the ad were Jim Brown, Aaron Donald, Joey Bosa, Jalen Ramsey, Derwin James, Steve Young, Joe Montana, Jimmy Garoppolo, Christian McCaffrey, Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Saquon Barkley, Justin Tuck, Ray Lewis, Mark Ingram II, Brett Favre, Anthony Munoz, Barry Sanders, Ed Reed, Jerry Rice and Peyton Manning. The ad also included a tribute to Pat Tillman.
The commercial was coined the "Next 100." The ad came one year after last season's ad featuring stars from the previous 100 years of the NFL.
