Vineland, NJ’s Most Important Isiah Pacheco for Chefs
Often in the Super Bowl there is an unlikely hero.
The Philadelphia Eagles are a slight favorite in Super Bowl 57 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but if the Chiefs want to win the game, it could be an unlikely hero leading them.
2017 Vineland High School grad Isiah Pacheco is a running back for the Cheifs and could be the most important player in the game, according to ESPN’s Marcus Spears.
“To be able to be successful against the Eagles, in their losses, you have to be able to run the ball,” Spears said.
“Your back must be heavily involved.”
Pacheco has had a terrific rookie season, having been a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
He rushed for 830 yards and scored five touchdowns this season and added 121 additional yards during the playoffs.
So Vineland, are you supporting the home team or the home hero?
Looks like there’s a winner anyway!
