Bernard Pollard becomes the latest boilermaker to win a Super Bowl ring.
Once again, Purdue boasts of a player that is a Super bowl champion. Bernard Pollard was Purdue's only representative in this Super Bowl, but a Boilermaker has been a part of every Super Bowl for several years in a row now. Of course, Drew Brees was the most recent Boiler to have a big role in Super Bowl XLIV by winning the MVP Award there. The most recent Super bowl winner was Mike Neal, who was on injured reserve with the Packers two years ago.
Pollard joins the following list of Boilers with Super Bowl rings:
Drew Brees (was also MVP)
Dave Butz (Twice!)
Rosevelt Colvin (Twice!)
Len Dawson (was also MVP)
Tim Foley (Twice!)
Brandon Gorin (Twice!)
Bob Griese (Twice!)
Matt Light (Three Times!)
Hank Stram (Coach)
Keena Turner (Four Times!)
Congratulations, Bernard on being the 20th different Boiler with a Super Bowl ring!
