Iowa women's basketball superstar and lifelong Chiefs superfan Caitlin Clark joined Manning brothers Peyton and Eli on their alternate broadcast of Monday night’s Super Bowl rematch between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City, highlighting her family's impact on her career
The pair of long-time NFL quarterbacks asked Clark about her Kansas City Chiefs fandom, which includes a Chiefs vending machine in the family’s Des Moines-area home, and playing with Chiefs toys as a kid.
Clark appeared in the second quarter of Monday night's game from courtside at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, rocking a Chiefs crewneck.
Clark is the third woman to appear this year and just the sixth overall over the two-plus seasons that the Manningcast has been available. She is also the first current college athlete to appear on the telecast.
Clark said her whole family, from her dad to her brother, have been fans of the Chiefs for life, which rubbed off on her as a young girl. She also addressed an "embarrassing" photo of a young Clark floating around on social media earlier today.📷
Clark also highly graded a Mahomes spin move on the basketball court in a clip from a few years ago, saying she wasn't surprised that he was an incredibly versatile athlete.
