Dancing with the Stars Season 11: Former QB Kurt Warner

ABC.com

He’s the first quarterback ever to participate in Dancing with the Stars. Clearly he’s fast on his feet. But how’s is he without his cleats on? Warner was born and raised in Iowa and played college football at the University of Northern Iowa. He lives in Arizona with his wife Brenda and seven children.

FAMOUS FOR: In 1999, Kurt Warner emerged from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. In that same year, Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. As the ringleader of the “Greatest Show on Turf,” he led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances – including another Super Bowl – and received Pro Bowl honors for three consecutive years (1999-2001). He also earned his second NFL MVP in 2001. Injuries led Warner to move from the Rams to the Giants, and finally the Arizona Cardinals in 2005. In 2007, he led the Cardinals to their first ever Super Bowl berth, was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl, and surpassed several Cardinals’ franchise records including touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage and passer rating.

  • Green Bay Packers (1994)*
  • Iowa Barnstormers (1995–1997)
  • Amsterdam Admirals (1998)
  • St. Louis Rams (1998–2003)
  • New York Giants (2004)
  • Arizona Cardinals (2005–2009)

Warner and his wife Brenda established the First Things First Foundation, a non-profit public charity dedicated to impacting lives by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put first things first.

AGE: 39

BIRTH DATE: 22 June 1971 (Cancer)

DANCE: He has injuries, but he is a competitor and knows how to train. Will that be enough? The videos show he has rhythm.
