The son of Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner is getting a quick opportunity to show what he can do in college football.

Pete Thamel of ESPN.com reports that E.J. Warner, a true freshman, will start for Temple on Saturday against Rutgers.

Warner got a chance to play against Lafayette last weekend, replacing D’Wan Mathis. Warner completed 14 of 19 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns.

He selected Temple over Colorado State, Hawaii, Connecticut, and Marshall.

The younger Warner is six feet tall and 190 pounds. He may not be done growing. Even if he is, he knows a thing or two about overcoming the odds. He has had one of the most memorable examples of it in his house, for his entire life.

  1. I’ll never get tired of the Kurt Warner story. It’s one story that’s worth repeating over and over again. Sounds like the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

  2. Does he bring his bible to warm ups? I hope so! The lack religion and self respect in this world is growing!

  3. Josh Allen was 6’3″ and 180lbs when he was a freshman and still growing. I’d bet that EJ Warner will also add some size over the next couple years.

  4. “Keep Mike Martz away from him.

    Maybe he’ll have half a chance.”

    Yeah, Warner was a two time MVP in Martz’ offense, and played in two Super Bowls.

    But…but…but…he took hits….yeah, so did every QB back then….look up the injuries Brett Favre played through, the concussions Steve Young and Troy Aikman had…..there were no Tom Brady rules in place.

    Phillip Rivers has twice as many with the bible in his hand as well.

    Creepy group they are.
