Who is Chris Matthews? Meet Super Bowl 2015's Breakout Star!
The 25-year-old football player is a wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks and he made his first career receptions during the big game on Sunday (February 1) at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
Chris originally went undrafted in the 2011 NFL Draft, but was signed by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent. He was released though and went on to play in the Arena Football League in 2012 and then the Canadian Football League in 2013, but was released after an injury.
In the interim, Chris worked at a Foot Locker store and was working there when he got a call from the Seahawks to try out for them. He finally signed to the team’s roster on December 6, 2014 and only played in three regular season games before heading to the playoffs and ultimately the Super Bowl. What an amazing story!
