Just Cuz: Bo Jackson

by September 17, 2010

A little Barry Sanders, a little Bo Jackson… why not? Thought by many to be the greatest athlete of all time, Bo Knows was a freakishly fast dude built like mack truck. Think the size of Ray Lewis, Brandon Jacobs, any of those mammoth players, and combine that with the speed of Chris Johnson and you can get a pretty good idea of Bo Jackson. He was not only a punishing football player but a great baseball talent as well. He won the Heisman trophy at Auburn, hit 141 home runs over his MLB career, and played in the NFL from ’87 – ’90. His NFL legacy is remarkable considering how short a football career he had. Nike commercials, kicks, video games, cartoons…Bo was the man.
