Super Bowl Q&A: Chris Kemoeatu

Chris Kemoeatu

Ht./Wt.: 6-foot-3, 344

Position: Left offensive guard

College: Utah

Notable: The Hawaiian-born Kemoeatu, in his fourth season, has become a mainstay on the Steelers' offensive line. After appearing in 15 games last season on special teams and as a backup guard, he has started 18 straight games at left guard. Kemoeatu, whose full name is Uikelotu Christopher Kemoeatu, has helped the Steelers' running game become more effective of late, while also providing time for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to deliver. The Super Bowl will be his fourth career playoff game.

Kemoeatu took some time in between Super Bowl preparation to answer a few questions.

If you were NFL commissioner for a day, what would you change?

Not sure. I would take off, like, two preseason games.

What is you favorite sports movie?

"Remember the Titans," and that other one, "The Program."

What is your earliest memory of the Super Bowl?

Honestly, I didn't watch much pro football growing up. I was more into college.

When you did begin watching Super Bowl highlights, which ones stood out to you most?

I'd have to say the Niners, with Montana and Rice.

Do you have a favorite Super Bowl highlight?

The catch by (Dwight Clark).

What kind of hobbies do you have outside of football?

Shoot. None. Just football. I am always doing something with football. There isn't much time for anything else.
