Bo Jackson    

Only Athlete to be Named an All-Star Player in both Baseball (MLB) & Football (NFL); Heisman Trophy Winner at Auburn

One of the most decorated athletes in American sports history, Bo Jackson electrified both the college and professional sporting worlds. A two-sport standout, Jackson is best-known as an unprecedented athlete, and also a national figure for his “Bo Knows” Nike campaign.

Jackson burst into the national spotlight in 1982 as a freshman at Auburn and went on to win the 1985 Heisman Trophy. Following famed college football and baseball careers, Jackson played professionally in both sports. Bo enjoyed four successful years in the NFL and eight in the MLB. Jackson stands alone as the only athlete to ever be named both an MLB and NFL All-Star.

Off the field, Jackson hosts “Bo Bikes Bama”, an annual charity bike ride. On the ride, Jackson leads a pack of participants on their choice of either a 62 or 22-mile route that includes a trip through the campus of his alma-mater, Auburn University. All proceeds from the event go directly to the Governor’s Relief Fund, which provides crucial disaster preparedness and emergency management resources for his home state.
