An ONU football player never thought that being involved in the production of a Super Bowl commercial would be something to happen to him.
Through his family’s business, Everhart Trucking LLC, Aaron Everhart was presented with the opportunity to operate a truck used in the filming of a CBS Super Bowl pregame commercial filmed just down the road from ONU’s campus at the Wilson Football Factory.
Although Aaron didn’t appear on camera, he played a behind-the-scenes role in shooting the final scene, and was behind the wheel when the truck pulled away.
He even got to interact with NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, the star of the commercial, during filming. The most ironic part was when Wilson had to act as if he were alone in the truck cab, even though Everhart was sitting right beside him.
Everhart said the surreal moment is something he will never forget.
