Loren James Toews, born November 3, 1951 in Dinuba, California was a professional football player for the National Football League.

Toews graduated from Del Mar High School in San Jose, California and later University of California, Berkeley where he received his degree in biological sciences. In 1972, Toews was named the "most inspirational player" on the team at Berkeley and given the Stub Allison Award,[1] named after California football coach Leonard B. "Stub" Allison who died in the spring of 1962.

That following year, in 1973 Toews was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers where he played as a linebacker for 11 seasons.[2] While playing for the Steelers, Toews attended the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Business and obtained his MBA degree in 1981.

Toews was a four-time Super Bowl participant and a four-time winner. He started in Super Bowl XIII and Super Bowl XIV. In Super Bowl IX, though, he replaced an injured Andy Russell for most of the second half. As an accomplished linebacker, he was able to contribute to the win.

Toews has a wife, Valerie and is also the father of three children: Aaron, Jocelyn and Cassandra. Aaron was a defenseman on the Northeastern University hockey team from 1996-1998. Jocelyn owns an independent record label called Lujo Records.

Toews currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where he and his younger brother Jeff buy and sell Real Estate.
