For while we have our eyes on the future, history has its eyes on us Amanda Gorman 

During the Super Bowl pregame show, Gorman will be reciting an original poem honoring three honorary captains chosen for the big game, including Los Angeles teacher Trimaine Davis, Tampa nurse Suzie Dorner, and Marine veteran James Martin.
