Isiah Pacheco you already know what a win a super bowl. He did it last year with the Chiefs, in his rookie year, and as a protagonist in Glendale (Arizona) against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Born in New Jersey 24 years ago, he is of Dominican and Puerto Rican origin. The running back ran for 935 yards and scored seven touchdowns this season.
In the 49ers he shines Fred Warner‘linebacker’ born in San Marcos (California), from Mexican and Panamanian origin. At 27 years old, he was the fifth player who forced the most fumbles, with four, and the seventh with the most interceptions, also four.
He is a teammate of Jon Feliciano, born in Florida and of Puerto Rico origin. He came to the NFL in the 2015 draft, chosen by the Raiders, in which he played for three years, although not in Las Vegas. In fact, between 2015 and 2018 the franchise was still based in Oakland.
In his career he also played in the Buffalo Bills and in the New York Giants. Now, he is one step away from being crowned champion with the 49ers.
Another very special story is that of Mexican Alfredo Gutiérrez, who is part of the 49ers practice squad. He will not play this Sunday in the Super Bowl, but he is part of the Californians’ expedition in Las Vegas.
