Black History Moment: Let’s Play Football

Super Bowl XLVIII - Seattle Seahawks v Denver BroncosSeattle fans cheered as quarterback Russell Wilson led the team to a lop-sided victory (43-8) over the Denver Broncos. But other football fans may not know that he was only the second African-American to win a victory at the Superbowl.
