K.C. students share Super Bowl thoughts

By Jermarcus Perkins/Clarion News correspondent

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The Kansas City Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl for the second consecutive year. Last season the Chiefs played in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in SuperBowl LIV. Prior to that win, the Chiefs hadn’t been in a Super Bowl since 1970.

I asked a couple of Lincoln University students from the Kansas City area – Ladarrell Toney, a computer science major, and Mar’Che Boggess, a journalism major, what a second consecutive Super Bowl championship would mean to them.

Ladarrell Toney

The Clarion: How did you feel about the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl last season?

Toney: It was an awe-inspiring moment because I grew up in Kansas City. It was a lot of good progression over the years but in the back of my mind, I thought it can only go so far especially when Alex Smith was the quarterback. I was excited because it was more than just normal news going on at the time in Kansas City.

The Clarion: How would you feel if the Chiefs win the Super Bowl again this season?

Toney: I would feel like we are going to go on a really long run with this. I think teams who haven’t been so good are going to start being good – like the Bills and Browns. American Football would be so more fun and interesting to watch.

The Clarion: What part of Kansas City are you from?

Toney: South Kansas City/Kansas City, Missouri.

The Clarion: Mar’Che, how did you feel about the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl last season?

Boggess: I was very happy with being from Kansas City. We (Kansas City) pride ourselves on the Chiefs.

Mar’Che Boggess

Boggess: I would be impressed.

The Clarion: What part of Kansas City are you from?

Boggess: Kansas City, Kansas.
