Canton, Ohio (KWWL) -

Kurt Warner hopes the second time is the charm. The former UNI Panther quarterback sits as one of 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the second straight year.

Warner famously went from stocking shelves at a Cedar Falls Hy-Vee to quarterbacking the Saint Louis Rams to a 2000 Super Bowl Championship. His career took him to another Super Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals where they fell to Pittsburgh in 2009.

During his career, the Cedar Rapids native won two NFL Most Valuable Player titles.

The Hall of Fame Selection Committee will announce this year's class on February 6.
