Eric Dickerson was a running back in the NFL for eleven seasons from 1983 to 1993. He was selected second overall in the 1983 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams and made an immediate impact on the league. As a rookie, Eric set records for most rushing attempts with 390, most rushing yards gained with 1,808 and most touchdowns rushing with 18. That season Eric received All-Pro, Pro Bowl, Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors. In just his second season in the NFL, he became a member of the 2,000 rushing yards club and broke the record of 100-yard games in a single season, formerly held by O.J. Simpson. To this day, no NFL player has rushed for more yards. In 1987, Eric joined the Indianapolis Colts, helping the team to their first winning season and playoff berth in ten years. He went on to lead the league in rushing with 1,659 yards in 1988 and become the fastest player to reach 10,000 career yards. Eric played for the Los Angeles Raiders and the Atlanta Falcons before retiring in 1993.
Before going pro, Eric played college football at Southern Methodist University where he and teammate Craig James lead the team’s running attack, called the “Pony Express”. Eric broke Earl Campbell’s Southwest Conference record for yards and attempts and his 48 college career touchdowns tied Doak Walker’s SMU total. During his senior season, he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting behind Herschel Walker and John Elway. Eric was voted first-team All-American in 1982 and second-team All-American in 1981.
Since retiring from the NFL, Eric has worked as a broadcaster for KCBS television in Los Angeles, providing commentary for NFL pregame and postgame shows. He also started a sports memorabilia company with former Los Angeles Rams teammate LeRoy Irvin, called Original Mini Jerseys. The company received their NFL license in 2006 and sells authentic miniature replica jerseys. Eric was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
