You are kidding aren’t you? He was the biggest flash in no pan ever.

Other than looking like a 12 year old in high school pads and jersey.

Yes he could ski moguls freestyle (trash sport in my era, X sport in yours) more subjective judging then gymnastics. As long as this is how you are ranking him. OK.The little fella was a National champion in high school, became a world champion but NEVER higher than 6th in 2 Olympics.

12 kickoff returns and 10 punt returns in 1 season with the eagles is hardly worth ranking higher than Myers.

Today he is worth $5 million. If he was really more than a media darling on the slopes then the NFL should have left more than that in the bank.

Oh that mean old NCAA. But he has upset the apple cart where a collegiate education, room and board, and a “laundry account” are inadequate. Opportunity to market your personal image? The effort to support a minimum of 16 Varsity programs Athletic Budgets go BOOM and the Bloom is off the rose.

His book Fueled by Failure title is apropos.
