Seven New Jersey natives competing for it all in Super Bowl LI

New Jersey natives as far as the eye can see! When the Super Bowl kicks off in two weeks, there will be seven New Jerseyans on the biggest stage in sports. North, central, and south Jersey are all represented.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn was born and raised in Morristown. Quinn played high school football at Morristown High School. Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is from Sayreville and became a star for South Brunswick High School before playing college football at Rutgers. That’s about as Central Jersey as it gets.

New England wide receiver Chris Hogan was born in Wyckoff. Cornerback Logan Ryan hails from Berlin and played for Rutgers. While you probably won’t see him much, Falcons QB Matt Ryan’s backup Matt Simms was born in Franklin Lakes and attended Don Bosco Prep. Hightstown’s Nick Williams plays wide receiver for ATL. Last but not least is Falcons wide receivers coach Raheem Morris was born in Irvington.

If you don’t have a dog in the fight, maybe six names will help you find some rooting interest in the Falcons vs. Patriots Super Bowl match up.
