Grant Haley & Nick Scott Win Super Bowl LVI With Los Angeles Rams

Former Penn State defensive backs Grant Haley and Nick Scott are now officially the latest Nittany Lions to become Super Bowl champions.

On Sunday, the duo helped the Los Angeles Rams defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 on their home turf in front of more than 70,000 fans.

Scott recorded two tackles against the Bengals, while Haley didn’t record any statistics.

Haley did not contribute much to the Rams’ postseason push, but Scott was a reliable player on the defensive side of the ball. Scott’s best game of the playoffs came against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game when he recorded six tackles. Previously, he tallied five total tackles and an interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and just one tackle against the Arizona Cardinals in the Wild Card round.

Scott played at Penn State from 2015 to 2018 and totaled 60 tackles and three interceptions. He was selected by the Rams in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Haley, meanwhile, is likely best known for his clutch play to beat Ohio State in 2016. He famously returned a blocked field goal attempt to seal the legendary Penn State win.

Haley’s road to the Super Bowl has been filled with adversity on and off the field. He went undrafted in 2018 before signing with the New York Giants, where he would spend his first two seasons. He then spent time with the New Orleans Saints in 2020 before signing with the Rams practice squad. In January, he earned a promotion to Los Angeles’ active roster.
