The Los Angeles Rams will be facing the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl this Sunday.
And, the Rams defense will look to do what many have tried, and failed at doing, and that is stopping Tom Brady.

One member of that defense that will be looking to make an impact is former Nole Lamarcus Joyner.

Joyner is not only playing the biggest game of his pro career, he will be looking to join elite company with a win in the big game.

Joyner would become the fifth player from the 2013 BCS Florida State championship team to get a ring. He also would become 37th Seminole to win a Super Bowl, and more impressively, the 11th to win both a national title and a Super Bowl.

The First Nole to come away with this accomplishment was William Floyd, when he won a Super Bowl with the 49ers in 1994.

Derrick Brooks is another famous FSU alum to win a ring when after winning the ’93 National Championship with the Seminoles, he did so in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003 leading one of the best defenses of all time. A year ago DT Timmy Jernigan and DB Ronald Darby led four previous members of the 2013 FSU Title team to win a championship as the Eagles upset the Patriots.

Joyner has become a big part of the Rams defense after having a solid 2017 season playing a safety/corner hybrid with three interceptions. He has responded with a better season in 2018 with a career high 78 tackles one INT and three other passes defended, while under the franchise tag setting him up for a nice pay raise.

Joyner is no stranger to playing in big games and that experience should help him come Sunday, when he battles against the likes of Julian Edleman, and former Canes WR Phillip Dorsett, etc.

Noles fans, who don’t have a rooting interest in the game, can at least root for one of their own to bring home another title for the Nole family.
