The Legend of Earl Campbell

The end of the long Texas-Texas A&M rivalry last night, with the Longhorns winning 27-25 on a last second field goal, brought back memories of one of my all time favorite players, Earl Campbell. His combination of speed, power, and balance, plus his punishing running style made him a human highlight reel. Here are links to youtube videos of some of his greatest moments:
