“My dream is to become an NFL Head Coach because I’m a trailblazer, and I would love to share my passion for football at the professional level.” – Marlo Mosley
Name: Marlo Mosley
Although the world was watching the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers at Super Bowl 50, the real shining star was 11-year-old Marlo Mosley, who was named the NFL’s Play 60 Super Kid! Marlo loves football, and plays wide-receiver on her all-boy tackle football team. Marlo’s enthusiasm, passion and simple love of the game is what won her this title – we hope that Marlo can use her passion to inspire and encourage other girls to play sports and be active and healthy every day!
5 Reasons Marlo is Awesome:
- Marlo beat out thousands of kids to win the NFL’s Play 60 Award, which encourages kids to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.
- Marlo plays football every day, but she doesn’t want to play professionally – she wants to be a head coach so that she can share her passion.
- In her Play 60 submission video, Marlo describes herself as a “trailblazer” in the sport.
- Marlo got to enjoy a week’s worth of events for being named the Play 60 Super Kid, including meeting her NFL idols and handling the gameday ball off to the ref at Super Bowl 50!
- Marlo’s favorite team is the San Francisco 49ers, so it was only fitting that she found out about her Play 60 award from hometown favorite, Roger Craig!
