Jerome Bettis

Jerome Bettis, affectionately known as “The Bus,” had a standout career as a running back, primarily with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Originally drafted by the Los Angeles Rams 10th overall in the 1993 NFL Draft, Bettis moved to the Steelers in 1996 where he established himself as one of the most consistent rushers in the league.

Bettis amassed 13662 career rushing yards, ranking 8th on the NFL’s all-time list, along with 91 rushing touchdowns. He was selected to the Pro Bowl six times and was a two-time First-Team All-Pro.

Bettis also helped the Steelers secure a victory in Super Bowl XL in his final NFL game, a fitting end to his impressive career. In 2015, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Wayne Gandy

Wayne Gandy was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the first round of the 1994 NFL Draft with the 15th overall pick. He played college football at Auburn University, where he established himself as one of the top offensive tackles in the nation.

Gandy’s NFL career spanned 15 seasons, during which he played for the Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, and Atlanta Falcons. He started most of the games he played in (205 out of 219) and was known as one of the league’s most durable and dependable offensive linemen.

His leadership on the offensive line helped anchor several successful offenses, and his consistent play was a key factor for his teams over the years.

Tommy Maddox

Tommy Maddox was initially drafted in the first round (25th overall) of the 1992 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. After spending his first three seasons in the NFL with the Broncos, Maddox had stints with several other teams, including the Rams, Giants, and Falcons.

Maddox experienced a career revival in the short-lived XFL with the Los Angeles Xtreme. In the XFL’s single season in 2001, Maddox was named the league’s MVP, leading the Xtreme to the championship and winning the Million Dollar Game.

This resurgence led to his return to the league with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2002, he took over as the starting quarterback from Kordell Stewart and led the team to a 10-5-1 record, earning NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors.

  • Super Bowl Champ (Steelers)

Steve Bono

Steve Bono is probably best remembered for his time with the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. However, Bono spent 15 years in the NFL playing for seven different teams: the Vikings, Steelers, 49ers, Chiefs, Packers, Rams, and Panthers.

After being selected in the sixth round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, Bono had the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches and players in the league. For example, he joined the San Francisco 49ers in 1989, where he had the chance to learn from Hall of Fame QBs Joe Montana and Steve Young.

In 1995, Bono became the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. That year, he led the Chiefs to a 13-3 record and a first-place finish in the AFC West. His performance earned him a spot in the Pro Bowl.
