Arguably the most dynamic two-sport athlete in American history, Jackson is the only professional athlete to be named an All-Star in two sports. Jackson excelled in both football and baseball at Auburn University before being drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 1986, with whom he debuted for later that same season.
He was also drafted by the National Football League’s Los Angeles Raiders in 1987, where he was an elite running back for four seasons before his career was derailed by a dislocated hip. As an outfielder for the Royals in 1989 Jackson hit a career high 32 home runs, stole 26 bases and was named an American League All-Star.
Throughout his MLB and NFL careers, Jackson routinely wowed fans and journalists alike with feats of athleticism never seen before. He became a nationwide sensation with his endorsement of Nike in the still famous “Bo Knows…” ad campaign.
After his playing career, Jackson completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Child Development at Auburn, and has since involved himself in various business and philanthropic ventures, including the development of an 88,000 square foot elite training facility and developing Bo Bikes Bama, an annual cycling trip in Alabama that unites cyclists in support of the state and assists in its efforts to recover from tornado damage.
