WASHINGTON — As the National Football League (NFL) approaches playoff time, American football fans are already thinking about the next major sporting event: Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022, in Los Angeles.
Museum of the Bible is pleased to announce its partnership with Athletes in Action as the official national title sponsor of the 35th Super Bowl Breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 12, 2022, in Los Angeles. The annual event, which is sanctioned by the NFL, unites fans and football legends for a morning of prayer, celebration and the presentation of the 2022 Bart Starr Award ahead of the big game.
The 2022 Bart Starr Award winner is Russell Wilson, quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson joins a legacy of Bart Starr Award winners, including Peyton Manning (2015), Ben Watson (2018), Drew Brees (2011) and Derrick Brooks (2004), to name a few.
The prestigious Bart Starr Award is the only award, other than the Pro Bowl, that is voted on by all NFL players. The award honors the recipient’s outstanding character and leadership at home, on the field and in the community.“Since 1988, the Super Bowl Breakfast has brought together sports stars and influential leaders in every Super Bowl host city,” said Harry Hargrave, CEO of Museum of the Bible. “We are thrilled to serve as the national title sponsor for this event. Many of football’s biggest names draw strength from the Bible, so we’re excited to share more about how the Bible has had a powerful impact on these athletes.”
The 35th annual Super Bowl Breakfast will be held in person at the JW Marriott LA Live from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. (PT) and will feature Coach Frank Reich of the Indianapolis Colts, Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, Pittsburgh Pro Football and UCLA Athletics Hall of Famer Carnell Lakeand and 2021 Bart Starr Award recipient and linebacker for the New Orleans Saints, Demario Davis, as keynote speakers.
“As a former winner of the Bart Starr Award, it means a lot to me to serve as an ambassador for the Super Bowl Breakfast,” said Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz. “This year’s program will be extra special for me because it’s going to be in Southern California where I was born, raised and played my college football career at USC.”
In addition to being held in person in Los Angeles, portions of the Super Bowl Breakfast will also be available for viewing on Athletes in Action’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
