SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah Blaze had a rough start to the season, but they've since won two in a row, thanks in large part to wide receiver Super Mario.

Mario Urrutia, known as Super Mario, earned All-American status while at Louisville and was eventually drafted by the Bengals, but an injury pulled him out of the NFL.

Like many players at his level, Mario hopes to get another shot at the NFL, but he says even if that shot never comes, he still enjoys where he is.

FOX 13's Jer Bates talked with Mario and some of his Blaze teammates about his success on and off the field.
