This year’s Super Bowl will go down as one of the best of the modern era.

In what was a wild finish, the New England Patriots came out on top of the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 28-24.

The game was played in the University of Phoenix Stadium in Phoenix, Ariz., home of the Arizona Cardinals.

In what was arguably the best finish of a Super Bowl of all time, undrafted rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted Russell Wilson’s pass intended for Ricardo Lockette at the one yard-line.

On this same series, Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse made an unbelievable bobbling catch, which surely gave Patriots fans flashbacks of a similar catch made by then New York Giants’ wide receiver David Tyree in Super Bowl XLII.

Sean Lallen, a senior at Jesuit High School, is a huge Patriots fan, and when asked about the crucial interception, he said,  “I was jubilant for the Pats and Malcolm Butler especially, he used to work at Popeye’s and I love that place.”

Senior Robert Paylor, a Seahawks fan, felt quite differently about the same play.  “Cheated. After a strong drive, and a little bit of luck, my team was about to repeat a Super Bowl championship until my hopes were shut down with what I think was one of the worst play calls in sports history and definitely the most depressing play I have ever seen,” said Robert.

While the play calling on that final play will always be questioned, Malcolm Butler deserves a ton of credit.

An incredible play from an undrafted rookie who was working in a Popeye’s not too long ago capped off one of the most memorable Super Bowl’s in recent history.
