Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner made a name for himself in the Arena Football League, one of the faces that put that league on the map. Now for his performances on the field and his work to pormote the league, Warner will be named as the 16th greatest player in AFL history, as voted upon by the AFL's Silver Anniversary Committee.
Warner made his AFL debut in 1995 and was the League's top passer with 2,996 yards and 43 touchdowns in his rookie season with the Iowa Barnstormers. Then in 1996 he earned First-Team All-Arena honors after passing for 3,341 yards and 61 touchdowns making an appearance in ArenaBowl X with Iowa. He left for the NFL after the 1997 season.
