Bo Jackson signature in silver marker on a Wilson “The Duke” NFL Roger Goodell football.
Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson former professional baseball and football player. He is the only professional athlete in history to be named an All-Star in both baseball and football. Jackson's elite talent in multiple sports has given him the reputation as one of the greatest athletes of all time.
Jackson played college football for the Auburn Tigers, and won the Heisman Trophy in 1985. He played in the National Football League for the Los Angeles Raiders and in Major League Baseball for the Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox, and California Angels. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1996.
In 1989 and 1990, Jackson's name became known beyond just sports through the "Bo Knows" advertising campaign, a series of advertisements by Nike, starring Jackson alongside musician Bo Diddley, promoting a cross-training athletic shoe named for Jackson.
A 1991 hip injury on the field ended his football career, and his baseball career ended in 1994.
