He was an iconic success story. After his career at USC, which included winning the 1968 Heisman Trophy, O.J. went on to a successful professional career playing from 1969 to 1977, winning three player of the year awards, becoming the first running back to gain 2,000 yards in a season (a 14-game season) and being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.
Then, O.J. became an announcer, an actor, and a commercial spokesperson – perhaps best know as the guy running through airports for Hertz. At 68 years of age, this man, a father of five, is facing this!
He, an epitome of the falling of the mighty, is serving the trial for kidnapping and robbery in Las Vegas.
