35TH ANNUAL NFL-SANCTIONED SUPER BOWL BREAKFAST RETURNS LIVE AND IN PERSON IN 2022

Highlights Include Presentation of the Prestigious Bart Starr Award

As the National Football League (NFL) approaches playoff time, American football fans are already thinking about the next major sporting event—Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022, in Los Angeles. 

Athletes in Action is pleased to announce the 35th Super Bowl Breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 12, 2022, and its partnership with Museum of the Bible as the official national title sponsor of the event. The annual event, which is sanctioned by the NFL, unites fans and football legends for a morning of celebration and the presentation of the 2022 Bart Starr Award ahead of the big game. The event is excited to return in person following its virtual event in 2021 due to COVID-19.  

Since 1988, the Super Bowl Breakfast has brought together sports stars and influential leaders in every Super Bowl host city,” said Harry Hargrave, CEO of Museum of the Bible. “We are thrilled to serve as the national title sponsor for this event. Many of football’s biggest names draw strength from the Bible, so we’re excited to share more about how the Bible has had a powerful impact on these athletes.”

The 35th annual Super Bowl Breakfast will be held in-person at the JW Marriott Los Angeles LA LIVE from 8 -10 a.m. (PT) and will feature Coach Frank Reich of the Indianapolis Colts, Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, Pittsburgh Pro Football and UCLA Athletics Hall of Famer Carnell Lakeland and 2021 Bart Starr Award recipient and linebacker for the New Orleans Saints Demario Davis as keynote speakers.  

As a former winner of the Bart Starr Award, it means a lot to me to serve as an ambassador for the Super Bowl Breakfast,” said Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz. “This year’s program will be extra special for me because it’s going to be in Southern California where I was born, raised and played my college football career at USC.”

The prestigious Bart Starr Award is the only award—other than the Pro Bowl—that is voted on by all NFL players. The award honors the recipient’s outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community. Current nominees for the 2022 Bart Star Award include: 

  • Derek Carr – Las Vegas Raiders

  • Cam Heyward – Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Micah Hyde – Buffalo Bills
  • Cooper Kupp – Los Angeles Rams
  • Devin McCourty – New England Patriots
