WVU Players in Super Bowl History: Top 10 Performers

4 of 10


7: Jerry Porter, Super Bowl XXXVII

The third year wide receiver out of West Virginia was trying to establish himself as one of the top deep threats in the league for the Oakland Raiders. The problem was, he was overshadowed by a pair of NFL legends.

Porter lined up opposite a pair of hall of fame (cannot believe Tim Brown got passed over again) wide receivers, Tim Brown and Jerry Rice.

Porter turned in a solid 2002 campaign, rolling up 688 yards and 9 touchdowns for the Oakland Raiders.

Porter and the Raiders made it to Super Bowl XXXVII opposite of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and previous head coach John Gruden.

Jerry Porter caught 4 passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in a losing effort. As a matter of fact, the Raiders got rolled up in SB XXXVII.

Tampa Bay forced 5 turnovers and held the Raiders to 19 yards on the ground. Oakland ended up losing to the Bucs by a 48-21 margin.
