On February 2nd in Miami, Florida, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV, to win their first Super Bowl title in 50 years.
The Kansas City Chiefs have not won a Super since January 11, 1970, but have won their second ever just a few days ago. Throughout this Super Bowl, there were many record-setting accomplishments. The first female coached in a Super Bowl, over ten non-drafted players played in the game (five starters from each of the teams) and the quarterback is among the youngest ever to win a Super Bowl.
The first female to coach in a Super Bowl is Katie Sowers. According to USA Today, “49ers’ Katie Sowers on being the first woman to coach in the Super Bowl: ‘Make sure that I’m not the last.’ When Katie Sowers coaches for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Super Bowl LIV against the Kansas City Chiefs, she’ll be the first woman and openly LGBT person to do so in an NFL championship game.”
