Sports and Torts: Jim Plunkett

Jim beat out Archie Manning and Joe Theisman for the Heisman Trophy, but had an unsuccessful NFL career, and was considered washed up by the time he came to Oakland in 1978. In 1980, an injury to Dan Pastorini gave him the starters job, and at age 33, he led the Raiders to a Superbowl victory, and earned the MVP. He is only one of 11 QB s to have won two Superbowls. Seven of them are in the Hall of Fame, three are still active.

Jim Plunkett
Jim played college football for Stanford University, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 1970. Plunkett owns the distinction of being the only player of Hispanic heritage to be drafted with the first overall pick in the NFL draft. He played professionally for three National Football League teams: the New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers and Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders. He led the Raiders to two Super Bowl victories (XV and XVIII). He is the only eligible quarterback to start (and win) two Super Bowls without being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
