Dawson to be part of trophy presentation
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Len Dawson will carry the Lombardi Trophy at the Super Bowl again.
The NFL said Monday it will salute Dawson by having him carry the Vince Lombardi Trophy to midfield and hand it off to commissioner Roger Goodell for the trophy presentation following the Super Bowl. The game is Feb. 7 at Land Shark Stadium in South Florida.
Dawson was the MVP of the 1970 Super Bowl after leading the Chiefs to a 23-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in New Orleans. The Hall of Famer completed 12 of 17 passes in the game, including a 46-yard touchdown to Otis Taylor.
Bart Starr, Don Shula, Doug Williams and Joe Namath were previous participants in the Lombardi Trophy presentation.
