SAN JOSE, Calif. — Nine-year-old Washingtonian Riley Ottele, with a huge assist from Super Bowl-winning quarterback Trent Dilfer, turned in a day for the history books during Monday’s Super Bowl 50 Opening Night festivities. The grand prize winner in Panini America’s season-long Panini Super Bowl Kid Reporter contest, Ottele made the Opening Night rounds like a veteran newsman, asking the tough questions to the NFL superstars who will take the field Sunday in Super Bowl 50.

With Dilfer serving as a Hall of Fame wingman, Ottele made the most of his once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by interviewing the likes of Cam Newton, Josh Norman, Jonathan Stewart, Greg Olsen, Ted Ginn Jr., Ron Rivera and more — and by also presenting every player he interviewed with a commemorative Panini America Super Bowl 50 trading card.
