Jamaican Competes For Winning Team in Super Bowl 51!

Jamaica is a favourite destination for scouts in a variety of sports because it is no secret that the island produces some of the world’s greatest athletes.

One such athlete, 29-year-old Patrick Chung recently competed in the 2017 Super Bowl and helped his team – the New England Patriots to secure victory. 

The Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 34-28.

  

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), and is regarded as the highest level of professional American football in the world.

Chung was born on August 19, 1987 in Kingston to Ronald Chung and Sophia George-Chung.


His mother recorded the 1985 hit “Girlie Girlie,” which surged the local charts to become a No. 1 single in Jamaica and reached the Top 10 in the U.K.

After heading to the United States, Chung attended Rancho Cucamonga High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where he played football as a safety and wide receiver and was a two-time All-League pick.

In 2009, Chung was drafted by the New England Patriots and later signed with them on July 27, of that year.

Chung has now competed in three Super Bowls. 

He is yet another Jamaican who has, with hard work, talent and dedication reached the pinnacle of his field.
