Kurt Warner, whose NFL career is one of the most unusual odysseys one could ever imagine - grocery-store shelf stocker to Super Bowl winner/MVP to has-been and back to (almost) the top - has decided to hang up the spikes at age 38.
He is a remarkable talent and a tenacious competitor who always gave it everything he had. His teammates revere him.
Warner is also an exemplary human being - a humble, born-again Christian who runs a foundation, First Things First, with his wife Brenda. When I hear the term 'role model' I think 'Kurt Warner.'
If I were a betting man, I would wager that he'll be in the pro football Hall of Fame as soon as he's eligible.
He's already in life's Hall of Fame.
