Nearly 800 million people watch the Super Bowl on TV each year. For Alan Burchfield, filling supervisor at the US site in Skokie, it is more than just a TV event. Alan is a passionate American football coach and a former semi-professional.
It was Alan who guided the current NFL player Melvin Gordon
a step closer to his goal of playing in the premier sports league. “For me as a coach, it was an honor to accompany such an incredibly talented young player on his way to achieving his dream,” said Alan. In his youth, Melvin trained with Alan and plays as a running back for the Los Angeles Chargers (formerly the San Diego Chargers) since 2015.
