Palisades High Alum Mitchell Schwartz Reaches Super Bowl

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.
