Jeff Hostetler, a man affectionately referred to as “The Hoss,” ended up having to transfer to West Virginia to get playing time even though he started at Penn State in college. His time there saw the young QB develop a reputation for being a highly-efficient player that could occasionally pull out a big play when called upon. He ended up getting drafted by the Giants in 1984, but he never really got much playing time thanks to the presence of Phil Simms.
Despite his incredible performance in Super Bowl XXV, Hostetler just never got it done during the regular season. He retired in 1999 in order to help take care of his paralyzed son. He now lives in West Virginia and runs his own construction company.
