Jim Kiick is a remarkable person; who is best known for playing halfback for the Miami Dolphins in the American Football League (AFL) from 1968 to 1969 and in the National Football League (NFL) from 1970 through 1974. He was a member of the undefeated 1972 team, and was an integral part of the ball-control running game which characterized the Dolphins under head coach Don Shula in the early 1970s. He played in three Super Bowls. He is the Dolphins’ fourth all-time leading rusher. He and Dolphins fullback Larry Csonka were known as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” in 1973 co-wrote a book, Always on the Run, and in 1974 shocked the sports world when they signed with the World Football League.

The August 7, 1972 issue of Sports Illustrated featured a profile of Kiick and Csonka. This issue has become a collector’s item because of the cover photograph of Kiick and Csonka by famed Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss, with Csonka making an obscene gesture with the middle finger of his right hand. Kiick was such a celebrity in South Florida by the summer of 1972 that a petty criminal who bore a passing resemblance to Kiick was able to rent a luxury home on Key Biscayne, make public appearances, and get engaged, passing himself off as Kiick, before being caught

In 1973, Kiick and Csonka, in collaboration with sportswriter Dave Anderson, published a book, Always on the Run. (A second edition, with an additional chapter covering the 1973 season, Super Bowl VIII, and their signing with the World Football League was published in 1974.) Kiick and Csonka discuss their childhoods, their college football careers, their sometimes stormy relationship with Don Shula, their experiences as pro football players, and the sometimes outrageous behavior of their teammates. There is an extensive discussion of how Kiick lost his starting role to Mercury Morris at the 1972 training camp. The book provides insight into the history of the Dolphins and the state of professional football in the late Sixties and early and mid Seventies. The book was excerpted in the September 1973 issue of Esquire magazine, with Kiick and Csonka on the cover of the magazine, dressed as Old-West dandies.
