An Indigenous Super Bowl champion

Walker River Paiute citizen Austin Corbett is the latest Native to win football’s highest trophy


February 14, 2022

A Walker River Paiute citizen now owns a Super Bowl ring.

Los Angeles Rams offensive lineman Austin Corbett helped lead his team to victory Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-20.

Corbett, a right guard, was on the field late for the game-winning score. It took a precise 79-yard drive capped by Cooper Kupp’s 1-yard touchdown reception with 1:25 remaining to give the Rams their first NFL title since the 1999 season — and their first representing Los Angeles since 1951. He was in the team’s starting lineup.

Kansas City football player James Winchester, Choctaw Nation, is believed to be the most recent Native to win a Super Bowl back in 2020 when his team defeated the San Francisco 49ers. Now, Corbett holds that title.
