Default James Winchester family celebration after Super Bowl win tribute to father

From Eric Bailey...

Winchester is one of three former Oklahoma players on the Super Bowl champion’s roster. He was joined by running back Damien Williams and tight end Blake Bell in celebrating the Chiefs’ 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

There were 23 family and friends in Winchester’s cheering squad at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. The player knows that a 24th was also watching closely.

“(The family attending) is exactly how Dad would have wanted it,” Winchester said, referring to his father and former OU punter Mike Winchester, who passed away in November 2016. “I can see the big grin on his face. The reason I made it to this point is because of that man and him instilling the love of football in me.

“For us, to be there together to celebrate a Super Bowl championship, I told my sister that was for him. I mean that. None of that would have been possible without him and without the good Lord above. I’m very grateful and thankful for Dad and what he still means to us today.”
