1. Indianapolis hosts Super Bowl XLVI
Although Indianapolis was the host city, the scope of America’s biggest sporting event stretched deep into Johnson County.
Scores of local residents served as volunteers. Area hotels were packed with Super Bowl revelers. Camp Atterbury hosted a salute to service members event that drew a host of NFL players, including Colts linebacker A.J. Edds, a former Greenwood Community High School standout.
An Atterbury training center was turned into Super Bowl Village South for the occasion.
