City of Minden to host celebration honoring L’Jarius Sneed on March 2

by Russell Hedges

Minden is honoring two-time Super Bowl champion L’Jarius Sneed with a celebration on March 2.

The celebration includes a parade at 11 a.m. followed by a noon ceremony at the Minden Rec Center.

After the ceremony, there will be autograph signing, food and kids’ bounce houses.

Sneed, a former Minden and Louisiana Tech star, helped the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.

The Chiefs became the first back-to-back champions since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004.

Sneed, a cornerback, played a big role in the Chiefs’ success throughout the season. In Kansas City’s 17-10 victory over Baltimore in the AFC Championship Game, he forced a fumble at the Chiefs’ 1-yard line, saving a touchdown.

Sneed has played four seasons for Chiefs and competed in three Super Bowls.

After last year’s title, Minden honored Sneed with a parade.

He also participated in the 318 Takeover Youth Camp in Shreveport along with many other current and former NFL stars from the area.

Following that, he conducted a camp at Minden High in July.
