BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — For New-Englanders, Tom Brady will not be the only familiar face playing in the Super Bowl this year.
Marshfield native Zach Triner will also be playing for the Buccaneers in the 55th annual game.
The 30-year-old graduate of Assumption University in Worcester signed on as a long snapper for the team in January of 2019, after brief contracts with the New York Jets and the Green Bay Packers.
Triner is a graduate of Marshfield High School and reportedly still lives in town.
The Sunday game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take place in front of a smaller crowd this year of around 25 thousand people, including 7,500 vaccinated health care workers who received free tickets from the NFL.
The NFL said all fans will be given masks when they enter Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. They will be required to wear them throughout the game's entirety.
The league also plans to have 30 thousand cutouts in the stands to supplement the smaller attendance number.
