Bo Jackson, the legendary baseball/football player who is also famous for what he could do in Tecmo Bowl, is one of the greatest athletes this country has seen in the last 50 years. Above is a copy of Jackson’s scouting report from April 1984. (It mentions his upcoming senior season.) The report showed up on Reddit this morning and as you can see, Bo was pretty highly thought of back in college when he was running track and playing football and baseball. Unfortunately, the report was wrong about his potential longevity.
Update: According to a reader, this is one of four scouting reports which are part of a new exhibit at the Baseball Hall of Fame.
