Amanda Gorman will recite a poem before the Super Bowl


She was the youngest ever poet laureate to speak at Presidential inauguration, and now Amanda Gorman will recite something before the Super Bowl as well.

Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner, announced it on Wednesday.

Here's what we know about the pre-game poem...

  • It'll highlight three individuals that will also be honorary NFL captains at the Super Bowl "who served as leaders in their respective communities during the global pandemic."
  • The recitation will be at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL
  • The three honorary captains are: educator Trimaine Davis, nurse manager Suzie Dorner, and veteran James Martin
  • All three honorary captains will then participate in the coin toss
