Highlights Include Presentation of the Prestigious Bart Starr Award
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 7, 2021—As the National Football League (NFL) approaches playoff
time, American football fans are already thinking about the next major sporting event—Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022, in Los Angeles.
Athletes in Action is pleased to announce the 35 th Super Bowl Breakfast on Saturday, Feb.
12, 2022 and its partnership with Museum of the Bible as the official national title sponsor of the event. The annual event, which is sanctioned by the NFL, unites fans and football
legends for a morning of celebration and the presentation of the 2022 Bart Starr Award
ahead of the big game. The event is excited to return in person this year following its virtual
event in 2021 due to COVID-19.
“Since 1988, the Super Bowl Breakfast has brought together sports stars and influential
leaders in every Super Bowl host city,” said Harry Hargrave, CEO of Museum of the Bible.
“We are thrilled to serve as the national title sponsor for this event. Many of football’s biggest names draw strength from the Bible, so we’re excited to share more about how the Bible has had a powerful impact on these athletes.”
The 35th annual Super Bowl Breakfast will be held in-person at the JW Marriott Los Angeles LA LIVE from 8 -10 a.m. (PT) and will feature Coach Frank Reich of the Indianapolis Colts, Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, Pittsburgh Pro Football and UCLA Athletics Hall of Famer Carnell Lake and 2021 Bart Starr Award recipient and linebacker for the New Orleans Saints Demario Davis as keynote speakers.
“As a former winner of the Bart Starr Award, it means a lot to me to serve as an ambassador
for the Super Bowl Breakfast,” said Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz. “This year’s
program will be extra special for me because it’s going to be in Southern California where I
was born, raised and played my college football career at USC.”
The prestigious Bart Starr Award is the only award—other than the Pro Bowl—that is voted
on by all NFL players. The award honors the recipient’s outstanding character and
