Springfield College Represented In Super Bowl XLVIII In a Variety of Ways

Springfield College Representation in Super Bowl XLVIII Springfield, Mass. – January 27, 2014 - When Super Bowl XLVIII takes place this Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., there will be several Springfield College alums who will be involved, whether it be on the field, in the stadium, or behind a microphone.

Dave Magazu ‘80 is in his third season as the Denver Broncos offensive line coach —a position in which he owns six years of NFL experience and 29 years overall. Denver’s offense has put together a record-setting year thanks to the efforts of quarterback Peyton Manning, as the Broncos set new NFL records for offensive points in a season, passing touchdowns, and passing yards gained. Under Magazu’s watch, the offensive line has allowed the fewest sacks (20) and the third-fewest quarterback hurries (54) among the 32 NFL teams. Magazu earned a degree in Physical Education and was a four-year starter as a defensive tackle and a member of both the 1976 and 1978 teams that allowed the fewest points (128) in the past 45 years of Springfield College football program.

Jessamyn McIntyre ‘04 has a multitude of media roles dealing directly with the Seattle Seahawks. In addition to being an Executive Producer at 710 ESPN Seattle, McIntyre is a co-host of the Fone Zone at Northwest Cable News. The ‘Fone Zone’ is a popular Seahawks post-game call-in show and airs directly after the Seahawks network broadcast. McIntyre graduated with a degree in Communications/Sports Journalism and was a four-year member of the women's volleyball program at Springfield College.

Ron VanDeVeen '89 is the current Senior Vice President of Events for MetLife Stadium, which is set to host the first-ever Super Bowl in the New York metropolitan area. VanDeVeen graduated from Springfield with a degree in Business.

Brendan Burger '08 will serve as a Club House Assistant during the Super Bowl for the Denver Broncos, accommodating the team and ensuring things run smoothly during their time in the stadium.
