Many NW Ohio ties in Super Bowl

Posted by LS - email

(WTOL) - Three former northwest Ohio football players are heading to the Super Bowl. Also, a portion of the championship t-shirts will be printed in Toledo if the Steelers win.

Local players in the big game

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is a Findlay native. Wide receiver Nate Washington is a Scott High School grad. Arizona defensive lineman Bryan Robinson is a Woodward alum. In fact, the principals of Woodword and Scott have a friendly wager on the game. The principal whose star alum is on the losing team has to wear the opposing high school's jersey come Monday morning.

Big bucks for a Toledo company if Steelers win

One Toledo company will be watching the Super Bowl closely Sunday night because the outcome could make them money.

Before kick-off... Before the coin toss... Even before the pre-game show, The Image Group is betting it all on the Steelers. This week, they're doing a test run of t-shirts declaring Pittsburgh the winner.

They're one of several companies around the country to win a contract to print thousands of t-shirts after the big game. But only if the Steelers win.

Steelers favored to win

The Steelers take on the Arizona Cardinals February 1 at 6 p.m. in Tampa. According to Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the Pittsburgh Steelers are favored by 6 1/2 points in most sports books to win.

The Cardinals were 45-1 long shots to start the season and 40-1 to win it all when the playoffs started. More on the NFL Super Bowl page and game stats page.
