Former Wyoming Cowboy Mark Nzeocha will play in Super Bowl

Former Wyoming Cowboy Mark Nzeocha will suit up for the San Francisco 49ers and participate in Super Bowl 54 today from Miami.

Nzeocha is a native of Germany, and was recruited with his borther, Eric, to play for the Pokes. Both brothers were recruited as linebackers, but Mark moved to safety at Wyoming during his sophomore year, then finished his final two seasons back at linebacker.


During his senior season, Mark suffered a season-ending ACL tear against San Jose State. His career finished after just 7 games in his final year with UW.

Mark was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft. In 2017, he was picked up by San Francisco’s practice squad. Nzeocha signed a 3 year contract with the 49ers last season. He has one interception on the season so far.

Super Bowl 54 kicks off at 4:30 p.m. MST.
