Kyle Shurmur, a La Salle College High School graduate and undrafted free-agent rookie quarterback, will attend Super Bowl LIV in Miami as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, writes Joseph Santoliquito for the Philly Voice.
Shurmur is the son of former Giants’ head coach and current Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
The elder Shurmur played for Andy Reid’s Philadelphia Eagles when they took on New England Patriots in 2005 in Super Bowl XXXIX.
That was the only other time younger Shurmur has attended a Super Bowl game as a spectator.
This year, he will be at the game again courtesy of Reid, who is now the head coach of the Chiefs. For the past season, Shurmur was on the team’s practice squad.
“This has been a learning experience and I’ve been very fortunate to be in a great situation under coach Reid,” said Shurmur.
During his time at La Salle, Shurmur passed for 4,996 yards and 53 touchdowns while leading the Explorers to a 16-6 record. As a senior, he earned PIAA AAAA First Team All-State honors.
