Herschel Walker is a legend.
As an NFL player he had 8,225 rushing yards, 4,859 receiving yards, and 5,084 kick-return yards in 12 seasons. He is currently ranked eight on the NFL’s all-time leaders in total yardage list.
He is one of only a handful of players to exceed 60 touchdowns on the ground and 20 touchdowns receiving, and keep in mind he spent his first three years out of college in the USFL.
Speaking of college, Walker was a three-time All-American and won the Heisman Trophy in 1982.
