By January 29, 2013

Ten-year-old Hunter Paulin, from Indian Head, MD, was chosen as this year's NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid. On February 3, 2013 he will hand the game ball to a game official moments before kickoff of Super Bowl XLVII in front of a worldwide television audience.

The NFL and The Quaker Oats Company sponsored this year's online NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest. To be eligible, Paulin pledged to be active for 60 minutes a day and answered questions about his commitment to being healthy. Paulin is a Washington Redskins fan and is inspired by quarterback Robert Griffin III. Because of congenital heart defects and numerous surgeries, Paulin must find creative ways to stay active, and he uses Griffin as an inspiration for his fitness goals. Paulin cited a 26-mile bike ride with his parents and one of his three brothers as a recent fitness achievement.

During the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVII, Paulin will be a part of NFL PLAY 60 Kids' Day at the NFL Experience interactive theme park, and will participate in NFL FLAG skills and drills as well as a youth football clinic. The NFL PLAY 60 Super Bowl Contest is part of NFL PLAY 60 which challenges kids across the country to get active for 60 minutes a day. Learn more about the contest at www.QuakerOats.com/NFLPLAY60.
