Patriots center David Andrews shouldered one of the most difficult burdens in Super Bowl LIII. At the parade on Tuesday, he made sure to enjoy his accomplishment.
The 26-year-old offensive lineman, who has played in three Super Bowls in the four years of his NFL career, was one of the stars of the team’s celebration in Boston.
Andrews and his fellow linemen blocked Aaron Donald and the rest of the talented Los Angeles Rams defensive front as the Patriots won the Super Bowl, 13-3. In the aftermath of their victory, the Patriots’ offensive line became a highlight for fans at the parade.
It started with Andrews simply waving the crowd on.

Quickly, however, Andrews took a place out in front of the truck he was riding, and removed his shirt.
