The Sports Archives Greatest Moments – Spotlight on Bo Jackson

Vince Edward “Bo” Jackson was really an amazing athlete in his day. Not only did he win the Heisman Trophy in 1985, but he also became the first athlete to be named an All-Star in two major American Sports, baseball and football.

He was so versatile, that in 1986, he was the #1 pick of football’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the fourth-round pick of MLB’s Kansas City Royals and the fifth-round pick for the Savannah Spirits of the Continental Basketball Association!

It seemed there wasn’t one sport that Bo could not learn to play…remember “Bo Knows”?
