Malcolm Smith named Super Bowl MVP

National Football Post

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith became the third linebacker in NFL history to earn the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award.

He returned a Peyton Manning interception 69 yards for a touchdown in the first half.

He also recovered a fumble in the second half during the 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos.

"I woke up jumping, bouncing," said Smith, who won a truck for his performance. "It turned out great for us."

Smith, Ray Lewis (2001) and Chuck Howley (1971) are the only three linebackers to be picked as a top player in the Super Bowl.

Smith will appear in the "I'm going to Disney World" commercial.
