Super Shanle

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Former Nebraska football player Andrew Shanle has gone from substitute teaching at a Lincoln middle school to the Super Bowl with the New York Giants.

Shanle joined the Giants' practice squad in December. And though he won't suit up, he'll be with them Sunday when they play the New England Patriots.

Shanle is from St. Edward, Nebraska, and played free safety for the Huskers from 2003 to 2006. He signed a one-year contract to work on the Giants practice squad.

Two other former Nebraska players are on the Patriots' roster. Backup offensive lineman Russ Hochstein has won three titles with the Patriots. LeKevin Smith is a backup defensive lineman.
