No shortage of Kurt Warner fans in Canton, Ohio

Canton, Ohio (KWWL) -

Kurt Warner is just two days away from being enshrined as one of football's all-time greats.

He'll be inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio Saturday night.

But before then, a full slate of activities have thousands of football fans at the Hall of Fame.

Among them, there's no shortage of Kurt Warner fans.

"Not only was he unshakeable, I mean, you saw him get hit and it didn't matter, he completed every pass regardless of who was in his face. But he was also a very good person. If you followed the guy's history, you knew where he came from, he was the ultimate team player," said Richard Schultz, a Rams fan and even bigger Warner fan.

"Thank you Kurt for some incredible seasons and the only Rams Super Bowl. Love you man," Schultz added.

12-year-old Crawford Flaherty is in Canton with his family to celebrate his upcoming 13th birthday.  Warner happens to be his favorite quarterback, and of course 13 was the number Warner wore.

"I grew up watching him for the Cardinals. I saw him in the Super Bowl defeat to the Steelers. And I've read his book, and he's just my favorite quarterback of all time. He seems like a good guy and he just seems awesome," Flaherty said.

Fred Rojas, and Iraq War veteran and Cardinals fan, says he enjoyed watching Warner play.  But he says he's appreciated even more what Warner does off the field.

"He does a lot for the community. I do see that he's involved in a lot of different charities. And whenever an athlete does that, it's great," he said.

Warner will officially join the Hall of Fame Saturday night.
