Seattle`s Malcolm Smith named Super Bowl Most Valuable Player
East Rutherford: Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith was named as the Most Valuable Player in the 48th Super Bowl on Sunday after helping his team beat the Denver Broncos 43-8.
Smith pulled off one of the biggest plays of the game when he intercepted a pass from Denver quarterback Peyton Manning in the second quarter and sprinted 69 yards for a touchdown.
The 24-year-old`s touchdown effectively killed off Denver`s chances of mounting a comeback. They were trailing 15-0 at the time and driving but Smith`s interception gave his team a 22-0 lead.
Smith is just the third linebacker to win the prestigious award, joining Chuck Howley of the Dallas Cowboys and Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens.
