Super Bowl Champion and Hall of Fame Quarterback
Kurt Warner’s story is one of a man filled with dignity, class and undeniable faith that captured the imagination of the sports world and beyond. Warner continually beat the odds to quarterback two perennial doormat franchises to the Super Bowl and etched his name in the NFL record books along the way. The first chapter was written in 1999 when he defied logic by emerging from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. In that same year, Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl MVP. He led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances – including another Super Bowl – and was one of a few NFL players to be recognized with two NFL MVP awards, receiving his second after the 2001 season. In 2005, he was signed by the Arizona Cardinals where most football experts expected him to unceremoniously end his career. A few years later, he led the Cardinals to their first ever Super Bowl berth. Despite the football honors, some of Warner’s proudest accolades are for his philanthropy including the 2008 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, the 2008 Good Guy Award from the Pro Football Writers Association, USA WEEKEND’s Most Caring Athlete 2009, and the 2010 Bart Starr Award. He is currently an analyst with NFL Network.
