Football - 1997-98

As a freshman in 1997, Forney helped pave the way for the Cardinals to claim their second national championship -- literally. Playing on the offensive line, he played a key role in the Cardinals leading the Southwest Junior Football Conference in rushing, which resulted in a perfect 12-0 season.

In his two seasons, the Cardinals went 19-3. He was named first-team all-conference offensive lineman as a sophomore.

Forney continued his playing career at the University of Hawaii, where he played every game and made five starts as a junior and was named All-Western Athletic Conference as a senior.

He was drafted in the seventh round of the 2001 NFL Draft and went on to have a nine-year pro career, playing for the Falcons, San Diego Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars. He started eight games as a rookie and for his NFL career started in 89 of 95 games.
