At just 11 years old, Marlo Mosley is a rising star wide receiver and a diehard San Francisco 49ers fan with big Super Bowl dreams.

Marlo is among the thousands of young football fans who entered to win the NFL Play 60 Super Bowl contest with the hope of becoming the league’s Play 60 Super Kid. The prize is a 7-day adventure to Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

NFL PLAY 60 is a program that encourages children to play for 60 minutes per day in order to tackle childhood obesity.

In her entry video, the girl from San Jose, California, spoke about her commitment to being active.

“I love football and eating healthy,” she said, adding that being active “doesn't have to be a sport. It can be hula-hooping, dancing or even jumping rope."

“GMA” tagged along with Marlo and her family on Sunday as they traveled in a limousine to the 49ers' Levi’s Stadium. She thought she was one of three finalists but little did she know that she was the big winner.

At her destination, Marlo had an unexpected meeting with Super Bowl legend Roger Craig.

“Hi, I'm Roger Craig,” Craig said, introducing himself to the girl.

Her response was classic.

“What? What the heck? You’re Roger Craig!” she said.

She cried and the two hugged, and then she got the news.

“You’re the winner,” Craig told her.

“Oh my God!” she said.

As the Super Kid, Marlo will also get to run the game ball out before the Super Bowl kickoff and she is getting a role of a lifetime as a “GMA”’s special Super Bowl correspondent.

Last year’s Super Kid was Bobby Senna, a Pittsburgh Steelers fan from Orlando, Florida.
