Marcus Allen is one of a select few athletes to have ever won both the Heisman Trophy (USC) and the Super Bowl MVP (Raiders). He considered one of the greatest running backs of all-time.
Allen ran for 12,243 yards and caught 587 passes for 5,412 yards during his career for both the Los Angeles Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs from 1982 to 1997. He scored 145 touchdowns, including a then-league-record 123 rushing touchdowns, and was elected to six Pro Bowls over the course of his career. Allen was the first NFL player to gain more than 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards during his career.
Allen has the distinction of being the first player to have won the Heisman Trophy, an NCAA National Championship, the Super Bowl, and be named NFL MVP. He is inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
