Penn State

Warner was a standout at Pineville High School in Pineville, West Virginia, graduating in a class of only 90 students. He would lead Penn State in rushing in 1980, 1981, and 1982, and help the Nittany Lions capture their first national championship in the 1983 Sugar Bowl.[4] When his collegiate career was over, he owned 42 Penn State records (his 3,398 career rushing yards is 2nd in school history, and his 18 100-yard rushing games remains a Penn State record). On October 30, 2010, Evan Royster surpassed Warner to take over the career rushing yards record.[4] He was named an All-American twice, in 1981 and 1982.

Warner earned a Bachelor of Arts in speech communication from Penn State in 1983.

Professional career

Warner was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the first round (#3 overall) of the 1983 NFL Draft.

He led the AFC in rushing yards his rookie season, helping his team to the franchise's first Conference Championship game which they lost to the Los Angeles Raiders. The following year Warner suffered a torn ACL in the season opener against Cleveland and was sidelined for the rest of the year. He came back in 1985 and had a number of successful seasons before ending his career with the Los Angeles Rams.

Warner retired after eight NFL seasons, with 6,844 rushing yards, 193 receptions for 1,467 yards, and 63 touchdowns. He is a three time Pro Bowler (1983, 1986, 1987). He was inducted into the Seattle Seahawks Ring of Honor in 1994.[4]
