What??? I'd say Bo Jackson. The man was unreal.
In all seriousness he would certainly get my vote.
Nov. 30, 1987 - A month into his "hobby" as a professional football player, Los Angeles Raider running back Bo Jackson had a ball on his 25th birthday. In one of the most scintillating performance ever on "Monday Night Football," Jackson, who says his main job is as an outfielder for the Kansas City Royals, set a Raiders record by running for 221 yards and scoring three touchdowns in a 37-14 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
Jackson led off the Raiders' 20-point second quarter by scoring on a 14-yard run when safety Kenny Easley fell down attempting to tackle him. Later in the period, Jackson swerved around left end and set a Raiders record for longest run from scrimmage by racing 91 yards for a touchdown. Unable to stop his 225-pound frame in the end zone, he continued right into the locker room tunnel in the Kingdome.
Bo's third touchdown came in the third quarter when he literally ran over linebacker Brian Bosworth on a two-yard burst on one of his 18 carries.
After Jackson's impressive game, Seahawks wide receiver Steve Largent said, "I think he should stick to baseball."
