This year's Super Bowl holds many story lines.
There is the matchup with the great Seattle defense and the high-scoring New England offense. There is Patriot quarterback Tom Brady against Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman and New England head coach Bill Belichick squaring off against Seattle head coach Pete Carroll. There is also the shadow of deflated footballs hanging over the Patriots.
Chris White looks to make the most out of any situation.
He has been rewarded for that attitude with a spot in Sunday's Super Bowl as a member of the New England Patriots.
White, who played linebacker for the Mississippi State Bulldogs from 2009-2010, may only be used primarily on special teams with the Patriots, but he takes that responsibility seriously.
