Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson is a retired American baseball and football player. He was the first athlete to be named an All-Star in two major American sports. He also won the Heisman Trophy in 1985.
In football, he played running back for the Los Angeles Raiders of the NFL. In baseball, he played left field and was a designated hitter for the Kansas City Royals, the Chicago White Sox and the California Angels of the American League in MLB. While at Auburn University, he won the 1985 Heisman Trophy, the prize annually awarded to the most outstanding collegiate football player in the United States. He also ran a 40-yard dash in 4.12 seconds (hand-timed), which is still the fastest verifiable 40-yard dash time ever recorded at any NFL Combine. A hip injury severely impaired his professional baseball career, and ended his NFL career.
