Meet Kurt Warner

Kurt Warner of the St. Louis Rams rocked and shocked the NFL in the 1999 season. Kurt's terrific arm and cool confidence directed the Rams to their first Super Bowl victory in 45 years. He was named Super Bowl MVP.

Kurt was the Ram's most valuable player all season. While he led his team to a 13-3 record, he was setting records of his own. He passed for 4,353 yards and 41 touchdowns. He is the first player since Dan Marino to throw for 40 or more touchdowns in a season.

Kurt played for the Arena Football League and NFL Europe. But it was always his dream to play in the NFL.

"I was just hoping I could get an opportunity and show people what I could do," says Kurt.

Without a doubt, Kurt did a lot.

WHEN I WAS A KID, I WANTED TO BE...

. . . A MATH TEACHER!

"School has always been important to me. I still go to school in the off-season. If my baseball career ended tomorrow, I'd go back to college and study to become a math teacher."

-- Alex Rodriguez,

shortstop, Seattle Mariners
