Meet Eddie George

The Tennessee Oilers are a team to be feared, and Eddie George is the reason. In only three seasons, Eddie has become one of the NFL's top running backs. "He's just too tough to handle," says Oiler tight end Frank Wycheck.

Eddie is an explosive runner. In 1997, he rushed for 1,399 yards on 357 carries.

At Ohio State University, Eddie was outstanding, too.

In 1995, Eddie won the Heisman Trophy as the best player in college football.
