Ohio State’s fifth different Heisman Trophy winner—and first since two-time winner Archie Griffin—running back and College Football Hall of Famer Eddie George consistently found space in what looked like otherwise locked-up lines during his four years as a Buckeye.
6’3” and 230 pounds, Eddie George combined nimble agility and lightning speed to threaten the record books every time he touched the ball, beginning in his freshman season when he carried for five touchdowns in his first four games. By the end of George’s 1995 senior year, he had set (and still holds) the school record for most rushing yards in a single season with 1,927, a feat that led to 24 touchdowns and took Ohio State to an 11-2 record en route the Citrus Bowl. Following his college career, Eddie George went on to become a four-time NFL Pro Bowler as part of the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Oilers/Tennessee Titans. Pay homage to No. 27 with this throwback-inspired instant classic.
