About Bo Jackson:
Vincent Edward is an American former baseball and football player. He is the only athlete to be named an All-Star in two major American sports. He was named the greatest athlete of all time by ESPN.
But now in this day and age, people are more prone to go out to try new things to enhance their performance on the field - to enhance their physical appearance.
I would say my greatest achievement in life right now - my greatest achievement period is - and I'm still trying to achieve it - is to be a wonderful father to my kids.
I also tell them that your education can take you way farther than a football, baseball, track, or basketball will - that's just the bottom line.
If you have four years to complete your college education, do it.
Don't sell yourself short because without that you can't go far in life because after sports the only thing you know is sports and you can't do anything else with that.
My workout was running down fly balls, stealing a base, or running for my life on the football field.
I have been a fan all my life, but now I have been out of football for over 10 years, and out of baseball for a little over six years and I don't go to games.
I love going out and doing new things.
As a 9th grader, I competed with the high school kids and out of 600 people, I finished 10th.
Back before I injured my hip, I thought going to the gym was for wimps.
Being the 8th out of 10 kids, and being the one that stayed in trouble, I sort of became a momma's boy.
First of all, I really never imagined myself being a professional athlete.
I always wanted to be a pilot.
I am a firm believer in if you can't get it the old fashioned way, you don't need it.
I guarantee you that's what Jeff Gordon does. He uses everything the fans throw at him to stoke his fire and it drives him to be better at what he does.
I hate to blow my own horn, but I gave a lot of people fits.
I have no problem with my hips - I can still do the things that I used to do. I can run, I'm just not the fastest person on the field anymore.
I was a pitcher, shortstop and outfielder, and the Yankees tried to sign me out of high school as a first-round draft pick in 1981. I turned them down to go to college.
I've always played with kids that were five, six, seven years older than me.
It occurred to me in my junior year of high school. I got my first letter from a big college. I still have that letter to this day - a letter from Indiana.
