Mutli-sport All-Star Bo Jackson is a retired professional athlete who dominated on both the football field and the baseball diamond. Not other athlete has the highly decorated two-sport career that Jackson can brag about. Named the greatest athlete of all time, Bo Jackson is a figure in American sporting history that will never be forgotten.
After a turned down draft selection from the New York Yankees, Bo Jackson found himself at Auburn University playing both baseball and football. On the diamond, Jackson boasted a .401 with 43 RBIs and 171 homeruns while on the football field, Jackson was just as successful with an average 6.6 yard carry per possession and 43 of his 45 touchdowns coming from rushing.
In 1986, Bo went professional in both sports, playing football for the Los Angeles Raiders while killing it on the Diamond for the Kansas City Royals. During his short lived four year football career, Jackson rushed an incredible 2,782 yards with 16 touchdowns. Named a Pro Bowler in 1990, Jackson’s career quickly ended after an injury, leaving Jackson to his MLB career that was already in progress.
In the MLB, Jackson played a successful career with the Royals, Chicago White Sox and eventually the California Angels before his retirement in 1994. With 141 homeruns and 415 RBIs, Bo Jackson’s professional baseball career was highly decorated with his recognition as an All-Star Game MVP.
