Ron Jaworski, was born and raised in the gritty steel town of Lackawanna, NY (a small town outside of Buffalo). When Ron was in high school he was a three-sport stand out.
Ron went on to have an outstanding career at Youngstown State University in Ohio, including an impressive appearance in the Senior Bowl and the Ohio Shrine Bowl games.
The Rams, impressed with his arm and his performance in the Senior Bowl, drafted Jaws in the second round of the 1973 NFL draft.
After spending four years with the Rams, the rights to Jaworski were traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in March of 1977. Under head coach Dick Vermeil and behind Ron's ability and enthusiastic field leadership, the Eagles advanced to the NFC playoffs in 1978 and 1979. In 1980, Jaws led the Eagles to a 12-4 record, the NFC Championship and their first-ever berth in a Super Bowl (Super Bowl XV vs. the Oakland Raiders). Ron finished the 1980 season as the No. 1-rated passer in the NFC and was awarded the 1980 NFL MVP! In recognition of his brilliant 1980 season, Ron was selected to the Pro Bowl.
Until the time Ron suffered a broken leg at St. Louis during the 13th game of the 1984 season, he had started 116 straight NFL games, a record for most consecutive starts. Jaws held that record until 1999, when Brett Farve broke it.
