Aubrey Will Serve as the Official NFL PLAY 60 Ambassador and Participate in Community Events Throughout the Week Leading up to Super Bowl LVI
January 26, 2022 – Today, the NFL announced eleven-year-old Aubrey Anaya from Indio, California as this year’s NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid. Aubrey will be the official NFL PLAY 60 Ambassador during Super Bowl Week in Los Angeles. In addition to participating in a variety of community events and behind the scenes opportunities leading up to the Super Bowl, Aubrey will also be recognized on Feb. 13 during the second half of Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium on NBC.
Aubrey’s dedication to creating a healthier school community made her a natural fit as this year’s NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid. She has become a leader at school through her involvement in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, the nation’s largest in-school nutrition and physical activity program presented in collaboration by America’s Dairy Farmers and the NFL. With her Fuel Up to Play 60 Team, she volunteers to help others learn more about being healthy and staying physically active for at least 60 minutes a day, has distributed food to those in need in her community and in February, she’ll lead a Super Bowl LVI inspired canned food drive at her school.
Earlier this morning, she was surprised by the hosts of ABC’s Good Morning America, with the help of her favorite NFL player, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Dereck Carr, who shared that she will serve as Good Morning America’s Kid Correspondent throughout the week of Super Bowl LVI. During the week leading up to the game, Aubrey will attend Super Bowl Experience and interview players and celebrities on the Red Carpet at NFL Honors presented by Invisalign, among other events.
Watch the segment here where Aubrey found out she’s this year’s NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid and tune in throughout Super Bowl week to @FUTP60 on social and Good Morning America to see her in action!
