All-Time All-State Super Bowl Team

In keeping with our usual first team all-state football format (30 players, six multi-purpose) and including the 2017 Super Bowl but not 2018, here’s a lineup we’d pick as our All-Time All-State Super Bowl Team. Performances in the game itself was one major part of the criteria (MVPs, etc.) and then looked at those who have Hall of Fame, All-Pro credentials.
