Former Hilltopper Deon Yelder Is A Super Bowl Champion | WKU Connection

Last night the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in super bowl 54 from Miami, Florida.

Among those on the winning side included former Hilltopper Tight End Deon Yelder.

Yelder famously was a former 4 year walk-on at WKU under Jeff Brohm before totaling 52 catches and 688 yards in 2017.

This season Deon recorded 3 catches for 50 yards in 12 games played.

Yelder becomes the second Hilltopper with a super bowl ring joining former RB Bobby Rainy (Giants).

Congrats Deon! Go Tops!
