NAPERVILLE, IL — Naperville Central alum Cameron Brate is heading to the Super Bowl. Brate is set to play as a tight end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as they face off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV this Sunday, though a recent back injury may have him participating in a limited capacity.
