When it comes to size and speed, no one used to his advantage as well as Eddie George did in Columbus.
George owns many of the rushing records, including most yards rushing in a season with 1,927, the most yards in a single game with 314 yards against Illinois, and 12 100-yard games in a single season.
His 1995 season was truly remarkable, with 24 touchdowns, second only to Pete Johnson for most in a season, and setting the single season rushing record, which won him immense accolades.
His performances won him multiple awards, including the Maxwell Award, the Doak Walker Award, and the Heisman Trophy, just barely edging out Nebraska's Tommie Frazier.
The Philadelphia native ranks second all-time in rushing wards with 3,768, and third in rushing touchdowns with 44.
They just don't make backs like George too often, and his number 27 was retired in 2001.
