San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdyaka Mr. Irrelevant, has made it further than any of his critics could have possibly imagined. On Feb. 11, when the second-year pro suits up for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas against the Kansas City Chiefshe’ll ink his name in the history books next to a select group of signal-callers in their early 20s.

When Purdy takes the field at Allegiant Stadium, he will become the third-youngest quarterback to start a Super Bowl. He will be 24 years and 46 days old at kickoff, and if he wins, he will become the youngest starting QB ever to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

Dan Marino and Ben Roethlisberger remain the two youngest starting quarterbacks in Super Bowl history, respectively. Marino was 23 years and 127 days old when he started for the Miami Dolphins on Jan. 20, 1985, and Big Ben was 23 years and 340 days old when he started for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Feb. 5, 2006.
