Super Bowl LIII: Alter’s Joe Thuney earns second Super Bowl ring as Patriots top Rams

He also became the first player ever to start three Super Bowls in his first three seasons in the league. 

Midway through the fourth quarter, Thuney helped clear the way for the game-winning touchdown, a 2-yard run by Sony Michel that gave the Patriots a 10-3 lead with 7:00 on the clock. 

Former Ohio State special teams standout Nate Ebner will get a third Super Bowl ring while former Buckeye John Simon and former Bengals Rex Burkhead and Jermey Hill earned their first.

Rams coach Sean McVay, a Dayton native who played receiver at Miami University, was denied becoming the youngest coach (at 33) to win the Super Bowl. That is still Mike Tomlin, who took the Steelers to the top at age 36.
