Poplar’s Bighorn To Attend Super Bowl With Chiefs

Poplar native Myltin Bighorn will be on the sports world’s biggest stage on Sunday, Feb. 12, as part of the Kansas City Chiefs’ organization at the Super Bowl.

Bighorn works as an intern for the Chiefs. He was the team’s inaugural recipient of the Lone Bear/H. Roe Bartle Rotational Internship. He is a graduate student in sports management at the University of Kansas. The Chiefs’ program provides a candidate of American Indian heritage the opportunity to work with, learn from and offer input for various departments through the organization.

“As a club, we’ve regularly discussed our platform and efforts to educate and inform our fans of American Indian cultures and traditions,” Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in a press release. “We also realize that we have the ability to impact the lives of young professionals with an interest in working in sports. Through the introduction of the LoneBear/H. Roe Bartle Rotational Internship, we believe we’ve developed a unique opportunity to provide first-hand experience working across multiple departments in a professional sports organization.”
