Hall of Famer Gale Sayers only played seven NFL seasons, but his unparalleled impact on the game will forever "echo for eternity". Although serious knee injuries curtailed his outstanding career, his uncanny broken field running style enabled him to set a vast number of standards still unsurpassed by any other player including 22 rookie touchdowns, 6 touchdowns in a single game (tied by a handful of players), and the highest career kickoff return average (30.56 per return). Elected to the all-decade 1960's team, in 1999 "The Sporting News" voted Sayers the 22nd greatest NFL player ever, and he was voted into the Hall of Fame in 1977.
