The Kansas Comet

Gale Sayers was arguably KU’s greatest football player. From 1962 to 1964, the tailback led the Jayhawks in virtually every major offensive category, and was twice named an All-American. After KU, he put together an outstanding career in the NFL, playing nearly seven seasons for the Chicago Bears before suffering a career-ending knee injury. In 1977, at age 34, Sayers became the youngest person (and the first Jayhawk) ever inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Read more about Sayers at http://kuhistory1.wpengine.com/articles/sayers-soars/
