Whenever I find myself in a conversation about Barry Sanders, the “what if” game always goes down. What if Barry Sanders hadn’t retired early? What if he had actually played for a contender at some point? What if the Hall of Famer actually played with a quarterback worth a damn?
Even with such questions, many still consider him the greatest running back of all time – I’ve heard some say the greatest player period – and one hell of a legal cheat code on video games during the ’90′s. Above, a collegiate Barry takes to the air en route to the endzone against the University of Colorado.
Bonus: And just because there’s never enough Barry Sanders praise, enjoy yourself. Keep an eye out for his son, too.
