I was going to continue in the tradition of past posts titled “Stiff Arm” and “Kick Return Friday!” by putting up “Juke Friday!” today, but Barry Sanders came up so often that I decided to just make it Barry Sanders Friday.
Of course, NFL Films won’t let me use any of his pro stuff, so we’ll have to see college Barry. These are all clips from the 1988 Holiday Bowl, which had to be broken up into five different clips because Barry scored so often. God help me, I think this one was actually Cowboys vs. Cowboys.
Score #4, including the Sanders pass that set up the score.
Score #5. I have no idea why Barry was still in the game at this point.
Little known fact: I went to Junior High School with Barry Sanders. It was so little known that I didn’t even realize it until later. We had no idea he would be one of the greatest running backs ever at the time, you see. He was just another kid in social studies class. But when I put two and two together, I realized that we did, indeed roam the same hallways at one time.
He juked the crap out of me one day on his way to the bathroom, too. It was humiliating.
