Rashad Fenton, Chris Lammons and Rod Wilson are Super Bowl champions.
The South Carolina alumni were all part of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Fenton (2015-18), a defensive back, had one tackle and key coverage on a third-and-10 play late in the fourth quarter.
Wilson (2001-04), an assistant special teams coach with Kansas City, led South Carolina in tackles (68) in 2004 and was a seventh round draft pick by the Chicago Bears in 2005. Wilson played in Super Bowl XLI with the Bears, but lost that game to the Indianapolis Colts.
Lammons (2014-17) did not play in the game. He is on the Chiefs’ practice squad.
Deebo Samuel (2015-18) hauled in five catches for 39 yards and rushed three times for 53 yards for the 49ers. The speedster set the record for the most rush yards by a wide receiver in a Super Bowl. He broke Percy Harvin’s previous record of 45 rush yards in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Samuel had 57 catches for 802 yards and three touchdowns and 14 rushes for 159 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season. His receiving total was second to only Jerry Rice in 49ers history among rookies, and his 961 yards from scrimmage ranked second among all rookie receivers.
