Before Kurt Warner was a Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer, he had to scratch and claw his way just to make the NFL.

Warner has had a very impressive NFL journey. He was not drafted after coming out of northern Iowa. He played three seasons in the Arena Football League for the Iowa Barnstormers and then tried his hand with the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe before joining the St. Louis Rams in 1998.

“I think it’s huge,” Warner said. “Some guys don’t get the recognition or don’t have the best college environment to really show what they’re capable of. To people that I can play.”
