His memory is a bit hazy, but Sam Koch remembers watching his first Super Bowl in his family's home in Nebraska and being entranced by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana. So while sitting down for either Super Bowl XXIII in January 1989 or XXIV the following year, Koch discovered what he wanted to do when he was older. "I always wanted to play football and my goal was to make it to the NFL," he said. "I didn't know whether it would be as a punter or what. At that point, I really didn't have an idea. I just knew it would be extremely gratifying if I made it there. Being able to go to the Super Bowl is a very gratifying moment, and it's coming true."
