Gale Sayers was a Pro Football Hall of Fame running back who was a Chicago Bears legend, playing for the team from 1965 to 1971.

A Kansas native, Sayers played college ball for the University of Kansas Jayhawks, where he was named an All-American twice. He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the first round of the 1965 draft, the fourth overall pick. His rookie season in 1965 took the league by storm when he had 22 touchdowns and six of them came in one game, an NFL record. He quickly gained attention for his fast, unstoppable running style, which earned him the nickname “The Kansas Comet.” Sayers was renowned for his ability to break through blockers as he ran, famously noting that he just needed a small amount of space to zip through: “Just give me 18 inches of daylight. That’s all I need.” Sayers was named NFL Rookie of the Year in his first season, having set a rookie record of 2,272 all-purpose yards gained. Sayers was with the Bears for seven seasons until his Hall of Fame career was derailed early by knee injuries.
