When the Pittsburgh Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay, London-born wide receiver Marvin Allen became the first truly British-trained player to win a Super Bowl ring. Although other British born players (Scott McCready, Patriots; Lawrence Tynes, Giants; Usi Umenyiora, Giants) have won the coveted prize, none were previously successful members of a BAFA team. Allen helped the London Olympians to win four British championships before playing in NFL Europe and on the practice squads of Pittsburgh and the Miami Dolphins.
