Camdyn Clancy of Alaska Named NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid, Winner of NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest Presented by Danimals®

The NFL today announced CAMDYN CLANCY, 8, as this year’s NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid. Camdyn, who is from Juneau, Alaska, will act as the official NFL PLAY 60 Ambassador during Super Bowl Week and deliver the game ball to the official on the field moments before the kickoff of Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday, Feb. 3 on CBS. The NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest Presented by Danimals® is part of NFL PLAY 60, the league’s youth health and wellness initiative encouraging kids to get physically active for 60 minutes a day.

ABC’s Good Morning America hosts, including Super Bowl champion and NFL Legend MICHAEL STRAHAN, surprised Camdyn in-studio this morning with the help of Seattle Seahawks WR TYLER LOCKETT. In addition, Seattle mascot BLITZ made an appearance to greet Camdyn, who is an enthusiastic Seahawks fan.

Hundreds of young fans nationwide entered this year’s NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest Presented by Danimals® online at NFLRUSH.com/SuperKid. To be eligible, Camdyn submitted a video explaining why he should be the next NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid. Following interviews with the finalists, Camdyn was named the winner of this year’s contest for his dedication to a healthy lifestyle, and passion and excitement for helping his peers to stay physically active and eat healthy.

Camdyn is a 3rd grade student, athlete, and valued member of his community. He encourages everyone in his neighborhood to get physically active and teaches them how to play football. He is involved in a variety of activities, from skiing to fishing, and when it gets dark out early in Alaska, he dons his headlamp, so he can still play outside. He empowers his peers to stay active and believes the opportunity to be this year’s Super Kid will allow him the platform to encourage other kids to be healthy and strong.

During the week leading up to Super Bowl LIII, Camdyn will visit Super Bowl Experience Driven by Hyundai, the epicenter for NFL fans in Atlanta during Super Bowl Week; interview members of the Super Bowl teams at Super Bowl Opening Night Fueled by Gatorade; and visit Super Bowl Live Presented by Verizon, amongst other events.
