Today we celebrate one of the best athletes to ever grace a playing field in all-time great Bo Jackson.
Bo turns 53 today, and on this date in 1987, he set the Raiders single-game rushing record by running for 221 yards and three touchdowns in a 37-14 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
Bo Jackson is the only athlete to be named an All-Star in two major sports.
While at Auburn University, Jackson won the 1985 Heisman Trophy, annually awarded to the most outstanding collegiate football player in the United States.
Bo was also a well advertised athlete in the footwear world. The "Bo Knows" advertising campaign, a series of advertisements by Nike, starring Jackson alongside Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician Bo Diddley, promoting a cross-training athletic shoe named for Jackson.
Happy birthday Bo, you really changed the game.
Proud to share the same last name as this guy.
100% agreed.
Actually, scratch that. In terms of athleticism, I think Bo Jackson is the greatest in the world!
Did something happen on November 30th?
Same birthday! Right on Love Bo!!
