For the third year, the NFL ran an online contest asking fans to vote for which player story they’d like to see in the league’s Super Bowl ad. A story by New Orleans Saints corner back Usama Young was chosen from more than 200 player stories as the winner. In the story (seen below and currently being turned into the final spot), Young talks about getting a job as a 14-year-old lemonade salesman in the Redskin’s RFK Field (now FedEx Field).
The winning fan story comes from Reginald Castilla. In his tale, Castilla recalls sneaking a portable TV into the trunk of his dad’s car so he could watch football in between his duties as a church usher boy. Castilla’s story can be seen here.
