“Bo” Jackson ran for 4,303 yards at Auburn and was awarded the Heisman Trophy in 1985. In '86 he was drafted by the Bucs but chose to play baseball instead. Oakland picked jackson up in '87 where he played four seasons, rushing for 2,782 yards and 16 TDs, had an average 5.4 yards per carry.
In 1991, during a playoff game, Jackson was tackled by Cincinnati Bengals LB Kevin Walker and seriously injured his hip. Jackson had his hip replaced and returned to baseball, but the injury halted his football career. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)
