For the second year in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs lead the way with six players set to star in the big game, including key performers in running Jonathan Smith (Admirals), safety Scott Connot (Admirals) and linebacker Rich Scanlon (Thunder).

Safety Connot was a defensive star, recording 66 tackles, 4 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles and 10 pass defenses.
