Latinos at Super Bowl LVIII

Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled for February 11, with a matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and we’re keeping on eye on the Latino players that will get their opportunity to shine.

There were initially eight Latino players heading into the playoffs and now there are only 3. These numbers are super low considering 53-man rosters of NFL teams. The representation from our communities in the NFL is still far from what it should be, but a growing number of players are looking to make their mark and inspire.

These are the 3 players to keep your eye on:

Isiah Pacheco, Running back, Kansas City Chiefs

Running back Isiah Pacheco, of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent finished the season with 205 rushing attempts for 935 yards and 44 receptions for 244 yards.

Jon Feliciano, Center, San Francisco 49ers

Jon Feliciano’s team, the San Francisco 49ers, qualified first in the NFC and, therefore, had a bye during the first week of the playoffs. He is of Puerto Rican descent.

Fred Warner, Linebacker, San Francisco 49ers

Fred Warner, also of the San Francisco 49ers, is of Panamanian and Mexican descent. Warner finished the season with 132 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and four interceptions.
