By Michael Sullivan

On Friday, July 21, 2017, MCI Norfolk hosted two members of the 2017 New England Patriots Super Bowl LI championship team.  New England Patriots players Nate Solder (Offensive Tackle) and Matthew Slater (Wide Receiver/ Special Teams) conducted a “Motivation Session” with MCI Norfolk inmates.  During the event, topics of discussion were motivation, religion, and overcoming adversity and hardships. The guest speakers shared their own real life stories, leading to their most recent 2017 Super Bowl victory. The New England Patriots had trailed 3-28 in the third quarter, but rallied to make the largest comeback in Super Bowl history to win Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons 34-28. In addition to the game featuring the largest comeback ever, it also featured the first overtime in Super Bowl history.
