MORGANTOWN -

Former West Virginia University quarterback Jeff Hostetler played on football's biggest stage and won a pair of Super Bowl rings in his NFL career.

Hostetler earned a ring as a backup in Super Bowl XXI, but will forever be remembered for his performance leading up to and in Super Bowl XXV. Hostetler backed up Phil Simms. Simms suffered an injury late in the season and Hostetler guided the Giants through the playoffs and eventually to a Super Bowl title.

Shortly after that victory, Hostetler created the Hoss Foundation. It has been active helping less fortunate families for the past 22 years. Recently, the Foundation's Gift Project provided more than 1,100 gifts for more than 700 families during the Christmas season.

Hostetler indicated he is more proud of what he has accomplished off the field than what he did on it.

As for Sunday's Super Bowl, Hostetler correctly predicted, "A Harbaugh will win."
