Solana Beach resident wins Super Bowl trip

Solana Beach resident Amanda Cameron has a knack for mixing luck and being at the right place at the right time.

She’s so good at it, in fact, that it got her a second-row seat at the Super Bowl, tickets to the Pro Bowl and the Chargers playoff game, and, to top it off, a $10,000 prize.

One of 200,000 who entered the NFL Fandemonium contest, Cameron was randomly selected to represent the San Diego Chargers at Super Bowl XLIV.

Cameron spent nine days in Miami, compliments of the NFL. During Sunday’s game, on a walk through the concourse, she struck up a conversation with some other fans. She said she was invited down to sit in the second row.

Cameron, 29, said Monday she looks forward to more great experiences throughout her life, but needs to get some rest first: “I’m very sleep deprived, let me tell you.”

The contest was judged on who could get the most online votes to be the NFL fan of the year. Cameron, who came in second, distributed business cards at the Chargers tailgate party before the playoff loss to the Jets, encouraging people to vote for her.

“I grew up a baseball fan,” said Cameron, originally from Orange County. “I played soccer. As far as going to games, we went to Angel and Dodger games all the time. I didn’t become a Charger fan until I moved to San Diego in 1999.”
