From the moment they first put on pads every football player dreams of one day playing in the Super Bowl.
That childhood dream has become a reality for former Palisades High lineman Mitchell Schwartz. Thanks in large part to his dominance at right tackle, the Kansas City Chiefs advanced to Super Bowl LIV with a 35-24 win against the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship game Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The Chiefs will face the San Francisco 49ers for the NFL title Feb. 2 in Miami, Florida.
Schwartz was named City Section Offensive Lineman of the Year as a senior at Pali High in 2006 and played four years at Cal. He signed with the Chiefs in 2016.
