Tomorrow Super Bowl 51 goes down. We all know that the Patriots are playing the Falcons, but did you know that there are 4 people involved with the game that are from the Capital Region? Ok, maybe you did and maybe you didn't.
For the Patriots, there's Dion Lewis who played for Albany Academy. There's also Matt Patricia who is the defensive coordinator and just happened to graduate from RPI.
For the Falcons have CBA grad Joe Vellano and Josh Keyes who went to Chatham.
So 3 players and one coach representing the 518 in the Big Game tomorrow on National TV! Don't tell me that the Capital Region doesn't produce quality talent. No matter who wins the game tomorrow, the Capital Region wins. I'd say that's pretty amazing!
