SAN FRANCISCO -- An 11-year-old football player will deliver the game ball at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.

Out of thousands of entries, Marlo Mosley won the NFL Super Kid contest and part of the prize is delivering the game ball to the referee.

Marlo has been busy practicing for the big moment at school and running routes outside with her dad, but she admits is feeling the pressure.

“There’s going to be everyone at the stadium watching and then everyone at home watching," Marlo said.

Loretta Mosely, Marlo’s mother, said she is very proud of her daughter.

Football is in Marlo’s blood according to her mom.

“She plays on a Pop Warner tackle football team with the boys," her mother said.

The 11-year old has football dreams beyond next year. In fact, her mother said Marlo wants to be an NFL head coach.

“Because I think women can do the same thing that men can do,” Marlo explained. “It’s no different. Nobody says a lady can’t be in the NFL and just coach. I think it should be equally the same, if they love to do it than they can do it."
