CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — Former Marshall safety, now Kansas City boss, Nazeeh Johnson is a Super Bowl champion.
Johnson helped the Chiefs defeat the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII Sunday night, the final score was 38-35.
The Eagles scored a touchdown on their first drive, Kansas City answered, then Philadelphia scored two more TDs and a field goal in the second quarter to go into halftime leading by ten.
Naz says no one yelled at halftime. Nobody yelled. Because everyone already knew what they had to do.
“Fighting adversity, down 10,” he said. “We went into the changing rooms and nobody was yelling at each other. The coaches just said “we just have to do what we have to do, eliminate the mistakes”. And that’s what we did. We went out. And now everyone is winning, everyone can celebrate together.
The celebrations started immediately after the victory; the Lombardi Trophy was presented to the Chiefs, the second in four years, and Pat Mahomes was named MVP.
The festivities will now continue Wednesday at the Kansas City Championship Parade.
“Just pure bliss that you can’t even explain,” Johnson said, when asked about holding the Lombardi. “I can’t even put it into words, he’s crazy. You used to watch it on TV, like, ‘man, I wonder what it would be like to be there,’ and it happened. I’m standing there holding the trophy and it was fantastic. But it will be more exciting tomorrow at the parade. It will be a sea of red. So I’m excited to see it. We’ll just have fun.
The Chiefs championship parade starts Wednesday morning, we will be showing a video of it on WOWK at 6pm Wednesday night.
Naz also shared what his off-season plans are.
“I really don’t know what I’m going to do in the offseason,” he said. “I know I have a couple of weeks to myself, so I’ll probably go on vacation and then come right back. Because OTAs start on April 12th. So we have to report back then, so it doesn’t give us a lot of time for ourselves, then we go back to face a championship again.
