This man is widely considered the best all around athlete of all time.

 

Bo Jackson was born in Bessemer, Alabama to in a family with already seven siblings. He would be described as a scrappy kid, and he brought that over to the field of play. During his senior year of high school, he established himself as a super star athlete. He rushed for just under 1,200 yards as a running back on the football team, hit 25 home runs for his baseball team, as well as winning two state championships in the decathlon. Jackson would be drafted in the second round of the 1982 MLB draft by the New York Yankees but would pass that opportunity up to continue playing multiple sports in college.

 

Jackson would continue his athletics at Auburn University, where he would play football, baseball, and track and field. During his football career at Auburn, he would rack up more than 4,300 career rushing yards, which included a season in which he had just under 1,800. He would also be awarded with the Heisman Trophy after his senior season, as well as being ranked the 8th on ESPN’s list of the best college football players of all time. In Jackson’s only full season of college baseball, he put together an out of this world season. He had 17 home runs, six triples, 43 RBI’s, and a .500 batting average!

 

Jackson started his professional career by playing baseball for the Kansas City Royals after he was drafted in the fourth round of the 1986 draft. He would be called up later that season he made his MLB debut. He would be one of the games best five tool players, and in 1989 he made sure to prove that. He won the all-star game MVP award, he hit more than 30 home runs, had more than 100 RBI’s and had more than 25 stolen bases.

 

Football was where Jackson left his mark. While he was playing two sports, he would report to the Los Angeles Raiders once his season with the Royals was done. That would give him plenty of time to try and help his team make a run down the stretch. He would go on to have a career average of 5.4 yards per carry, while also averaging a touchdown every other game.

 

The guy really could do it all. Many have tried to do what Bo did and play multiple sports at the same time at a successful level, but there have been few that have even seen moderate success.
