More on Sanders' Incredible Story
Sanders wasn't highly recruited out of college due to his slight stature. At 5'7", most colleges didn't believe he could stand up to the physical beating that running backs take.
They were wrong.
Sanders burst on to the scene at Oklahoma State as a junior after backing up Thurman Thomas, a fellow NFL Hall of Fame inductee.
He rushed for 2,628 yards and 37 touchdowns in 1988—one of the greatest seasons in college football history, and one that earned Sanders the Heisman Trophy.
Then, Sanders took his show to the NFL in 1989.
His NFL career was legendary, as he rushed for 15,269 yards and caught 352 passes for 2,921 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Sanders then shocked the NFL world when he suddenly retired in 1999 while still in the prime of his career.
