Kurt Warner, a retired NFL star, led sections of one of his award-winning students – of 30,000

Warner assists freshman Kedon Slovis, a freshman at USC, who made his debut as a starting quarterback. According to Warner's Twitter account the MVP Super Bowl in 2000 did his best to maintain Slovis sections while flying to Los Angeles from Nebraska, where his son Kade is a wide receiver.

"Good start for @ Kedonslovis … so much fun watching the kids you worked with get the next level of opportunities," Warner writes. "All I have is audio, unresolved, I can't watch it from 30,000 feet !!! Shoot my thoughts?"

Prevailing Thought: Slovis was grand, throwing for 377 yards and three touchdowns on 28-of-33 passing in 45 of USC-20 victories over Stanford.

Slovis, who is from Scottsdale, Arizona, said he began working with Warner at the age of 14.

"Yeah, he did a lot for me, especially when I was 14," said Slovis. "It was really, really helpful."
