O. J. Simpson

American Football Running back

» Latest News   » Videos   » Discussion 

Orenthal James "O.

J." Simpson, also nicknamed "The Juice", is a retired American football player, broadcaster, actor, and convicted felon currently incarcerated in Nevada.

Simpson played college football at the University of Southern California, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 1968.

He then played professionally in the National Football League as a running back for 11 seasons, with the Buffalo Bills from 1969 to 1977 and with the San Francisco 49ers from 1978 to 1979.

Simpson was the first NFL player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season, a mark he set in 1973.

While six other players have passed the 2,000-rush yard mark, he stands alone as the only player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a 14-game season; the NFL changed to a 16-game season in 1978.

He holds the record for the single season yards-per-game average, which stands at 143.1.

Simpson was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.

After retiring from professional football, he had a career as a football broadcaster and actor.
