Winning the Heisman Trophy in his junior year was only the beginning for the University of Okalahoma’s Billy Sims. Leading the nation in rushing with 1,762 yards, becoming the first running back in Big 8 Conference history to rush for 300 yards in three consecutive games, and having four 200-yard games began the journey for Sims’ impeccable career.
There was no surprise when the Detroit Lions drafted him first overall in the 1980 NFL Draft. He spent five years there, leading the Lions to the playoffs in 1982 and 1983, and successfully making the Pro Bowl on three occasions. His career ended abruptly midway through the 1984 season when he suffered a serious knee injury. Sims might have slowed down, but his legacy did not. His number 20 jersey would be worn five years after his retirement by another stud Lions running back: Barry Sanders.
