2013 Super Bowl: Virginia Natives on the Ravens, 49ers Rosters
Football players from right here in Virginia may take the field for Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3.
There are no professional football players from McLean playing in the 2013 Super Bowl (coming up this Sunday, Feb. 3) , but there are plenty from Virginia who may take the field for the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers.
When these two teams square off Sunday, it will be the fifth time they've met since the 1996 season. Baltimore has won three games — in 2003, 2007 and 2011. San Francisco won in 1996.
Virginia Natives on the San Francisco 49ers Roster
Ahmad Brooks is a linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers who had 50 tackles in 2011 and is on track to beat that this year. Before attending the University of Virginia, he attended C.D Hylton High School in Woodbridge and Hargrave Military Academy. (See Brooks’ bio here). He was born in Fairfax.
Joining Brooks is Cam Johnson, a rookie linebacker. He just moved to the active roster in late December, so he has only played in two games this season. He also attended the University of Virginia and went to Gonzaga College High School in Washington. (See Johnson’s bio here.)
Josh Morgan left the 49ers in March 2012 and is now a player for our Washington Redskins. He went to Woodson High School in the district and also played for Virginia Tech.
Virginia Players on the Baltimore Ravens Roster
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 after playing for the Denver Broncos. Taylor attended Virginia Tech and went to high school at Hampton High School in Hampton. (See Taylor’s bio here.)

An added, fun this year: brother vs. brother head coaches. Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49ers, and his brother John coaches the Ravens.
