It’s hard to believe that most teenagers have no recollection of Bo Jackson’s playing career. Time does move fast.

Last week, The Love of Sports.com ranked the top 15 human highlight films of all-time. The list included athletes from football, basketball, baseball, hockey and soccer.

Who came in at number one? Bo Jackson. It’s hard to argue the point. Bo was an absolute freak of nature and apparently the writers agree. Rounding out the top five were Michael Jordan, Barry Sanders, Mike Tyson and Vince Carter.
