NFL broadcaster to testify at House hearing

NFL pro football television broadcaster Ron 'Jaws' Jaworski will testify on Wednesday before a House subcommittee hearing on childhood obesity.

Jaworski played quarterback for several NFL teams in the 1970s and 1980s, most notably for the Philadelphia Eagles. He led the team to the Super Bowl in the 1980 season but lost to the Oakland Raiders. He now works as a color commentator on ESPN's "Monday Night Football."

The former QB will appear before the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee to discuss the NFL's "Play 60" program, which encourages children to get at least 60 minutes of exercise per day.

Subcommittee chairman Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) announced the hearing on Tuesday.

The NFL last had a presence on Capitol Hill in late October, when Commissioner Roger Goodell and several former players testified at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on player safety.
