Ottis "O.J." Anderson is a former running back who still ranks at the top of NFL records. O.J. was selected 8th in the first round NFL draft by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1979. O.J. became the first rookie running back to ever average 100 yards per game. Within his first few professional years, O.J. was named NFL Rookie of the Year and NFL All-Pro. In 1986, O.J. was traded to the New York Giants where he became the top running back for Bill Parcells' ball control offense. In 1989, O.J. was named NFL Comeback Player of the Year for his sixth 1,000-yard season and 14 rushing touchdowns. When the Giants won Super Bowl XXV in 1991, Ottis was named the Super Bowl MVP. At age 33, O.J. surpassed the 10,000-yard rushing mark and became a member of the renowned "10,000 Yard Club". During his time with the Giants, Ottis played with three Pro Bowl selections: defensive tackle Erik Howard, and linebackers Pepper Johnson and Lawrence Taylor. He also played with wide receiver Stephen Baker and quarterbacks Phil Simms and Jeff Hostetler during the 1990 season. The end of Ottis' 14-year career in 1993 marked the beginning of his career in entrepreneurship and motivational speaking. O.J. has appeared on several major local and national radio and television shows including the David Letterman Show and Good Morning America. He has experience as a broadcast analyst with WFAN for the New York Giants, and has co-hosted three radio shows in St. Louis with former Cardinal teammates Theotis Brown, E.J. Junior and Roy Green respectively. Ottis was also a frequent guest on The Billy Taylor Show in New York and contributed to in-season weekly column, "Ask Ottis", in the Giants Insider publication.
