He once ran a 4.12 40 yard dash. He was offered a spot on the Olypmic team but turned it down to persue Baseball. He was the total package of speed, strength, power, and heart. He has his hip replaced and still played MLB baseball and retired because he could play up to the level he wanted to anymore. 100% pure class.
Maybe my title should have read "most dominant in their respective sport"
