Two Players with Local Connections Playing in Super Bowl

There are two past Super Bowl Champions with local ties to’s coverage area competing in today’s Super Bowl.

We have mentioned a few times during this pro football season that the Eagles Torrey Smith is married to a Conshohocken native, Chanel Smith (nee Williams). The two met at the University of Maryland, where he played football and she ran track.

Smith held a sports clinic in 2017 at A. A. Garthwaite Stadium in Conshy and was recently spotted getting custom t-shirts at Don Len. Smith was a member of the Baltimore Ravens team that won the Super Bowl in 2013.

Boyertown native, and the Patriots fullback and special teams player, James Develin is a resident of Plymouth Meeting. He is a two-time Super Bowl Champion with the Patriots. He has an interesting story in that he didn’t take the traditional route to the NFL. You can read his story here.

Good luck to both.
