Another quarterback who stepped out of another culture into the glare of Heisman hype

Jim Plunkett in Super Bowl XVIII at age 36. Like Marcus Mariota he came from a much different culture, overcame early doubts about his shyness and passed up a pro contract to return for an extra year with his teammates.

Who Will Quarterback The Oakland Raiders In 2014?
