Making of Super Bowl 50 Wilson NFL Football

While everyone football fan in the country was glued into the front of their television watching the Denver Broncos vs the New England Patriots and the Arizona Cardinals vs the Carolina Panthers, I was in Ada, Ohio home of the Wilson Football Factory.

I was documenting the Super Bowl 50 Pizza Party, which is where half a dozen workers gather around a television watch the games┬áto determine whose name will be stamped onto the Super Bowl 50 “The Duke” Wilson Football.

I was on assignment for Wilson Football to document the first ball being made, to be pushed out via social media and other news publications for the world to see!

Even though I have been to the Wilson Football Factory four times this year, it still amazes me how they are made by hand to be used by every NFL team.

Here are my favorite images.
