Bo Jackson wasn’t just a “legend” as a running back; he was such an incredible athlete that we almost look back at his career in a mythological sense. There’s just no way a human being could be as athletically gifted, and so dominant at any athletic endeavor he pursued, like Vincent “Bo” Jackson. He was the only player in the history of professional sports to be named an All-Star as a professional baseball and football player. He won the Heisman Trophy as a running back at Auburn University, after turning down a scholarship offer from Bear Bryant at the University of Alabama. During his four-year NFL career, in which he split time playing baseball and football, he would continually do things that would make both teammates and opponents shake their head in disbelief and awe. If Jackson hadn’t suffered a freakish hip injury in January of 1991, who knows what types of records he could have set.
