CONGRATULATIONS Sophie on being named the 2017 NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid!
Dreams do become reality! A year ago, Sophie heard about the NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest presented by Danimals and said to her mom, “next year, I’m going to be the Super Kid.”
Sophie, a 7th grader at Mission Trail Middle School in Kansas, has been heavily involved with FUTP 60 since 2014. She is a natural born leader and thrives in Fuel Up to Play 60. As an ambassador for the program, she serves as a role model for her fellow students encouraging them to lead healthier lives. Last month Sophie visited Washington D.C. with two other FUTP 60 students to participate in a private USDA meeting about the importance of student leadership and in-school nutrition.
Sophie loves being active and playing sports and is a HUGE Kansas City Chiefs fan. Keep checking back to follow Sophie on her fun and exciting journey to Super Bowl 51!

Although her favorite team didn’t advance – Sophie had the time of her life. Highlights from her day at Arrowhead Stadium include meeting two of her favorite players:Dustin Colquitt and Cairo Santos, meeting and taking a photo with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and beating the war drum as the Chiefs Dipardo Spirt Leader at the start of the 4th quarter to get the crowd going.
The fun continued on Monday when Sophie was a guest on Kansas City’s music station - the Mix 93. Listen to her on-air interview here:
The Big Sendoff!!!
The Kansas City Chiefs, Fuel Up to Play 60 and Mission Trail Middle School weren’t about to let Sophie head to Super Bowl LI in Houston without a proper send off! It was a fun and exciting day for Sophie and her school when Eric Berry, Sophie’s favorite player on the Chiefs, and their mascot K.C. Wolf led a pep rally in her honor.
Next stop – Super Bowl LI! Stay tuned for more updates.
