Former Alabama running back Derrick Gore spoke about the upcoming Super Bowl LVII matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday.
I had the opportunity to be in the huddle and play right next to both of these guys. It’s going down Feb 12 that’s all I’m a say pic.twitter.com/ynmI1UFkee

Gore is currently a member of the New Orleans Saints but has had the pleasure of being teammates with both Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts who will square off in Super Bowl LVII.
Hurts and Gore were teammates for the 2016 season before Gore decided to transfer to Louisianna Monroe in 2017. Buried behind a depth chart that featured the likes of 5 future NFL running backs, Gore didn’t see much action, totaling only 93 yards and 1 touchdown in 2016.
In his one season as a Kansas City Chief, Gore is most famous for a 56-yard touchdown catch and run against the Minnesota Vikings in 2021. Filing in for injured running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, he had 336 total yards and two touchdowns in 11 games.
Super LVII will kick off Sunday, Feb.12 at 5:30 p.m. CDT. Alabama fans hope to see Hurts hoisting the Lombardi Trophy when the confetti settles.
