Former Minden High and Louisiana Tech star L’Jarius Sneed is now a two-time Super Bowl champion.

Sneed’s Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime in Super Bowl XLIII Sunday night at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

In four seasons in the NFL, Sneed has played in three Super Bowls. The Chiefs are the first team to win back-to-back titles since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004.

Sneed, a cornerback, was credited with two solo and three total tackles along with one pass defended.

The Chiefs sent the game into overtime tied at 19 on a 29-yard field goal by Harrison Butker with 3 seconds left in regulation.

The 49ers took the lead on their first possession on a 27-yard field goal by Jake Moody with 7:22 left in overtime.

Kansas City drove 75 yards in 13 plays for the winning touchdown. Patrick Mahomes completed a 3-yard pass to Mecole Hardman with 3 seconds left.

Mahomes, who completed 34-of-46 passes for 333 yards and two TDs, was named the Super Bowl MVP.
