Shaun O'Hara

Shaun O'Hara, a Super Bowl champion, was born in Chicago and grew up in Hillsborough, N.J. He attended Rutgers from 1995-1999, where he walked on to the football team and became a three-year letterwinner.

O'Hara was a two-time recipient of the David Bender Trophy, which recognizes Rutgers' top lineman. In 2000, O'Hara began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns, and he went on to start 38 of 54 games for the Browns over a four-year period. After leaving Cleveland, he signed with the New York Giants and was selected to the Pro Bowl three times at center (2008-2010), and earned Sporting News First Team All-Pro honors in 2008.

O'Hara's 2007 season was capped off with a Super Bowl XLII win against the then-undefeated New England Patriots.

He retired from the NFL after playing in 151 games with 135 starts in the league. Currently, O'Hara works as a football analyst for the NFL Network, Big Ten Network and ESPN Radio.
