Boom: Emmitt Smith

The former University of Florida football player was drafted to the Dallas Cowboys in 1990 and went on to win three Super Bowl titles with the team (XXVII, XXVIII, XXX). The running back currently holds the NFL rushing yards record (18,355) and was the only running back in NFL history to win a Super Bowl championship, the NFL MVP award and the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award in the same season (1993).
