We're not really sure why a two-year-old highlight reel of 1988 Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders has started to go viral this week, but we're not complaining.
The blog BarkingCarnival.com posted the video, and it took off from there. It has been since posted again by many other blogs, and as of Friday morning had climbed to more than 48,000 views. The video is, as you would imagine, tremendous.
Sanders is one of the greatest NFL running backs of all time. He produced what is quite possibly the greatest single season in college football history, as he rushed for 2,850 yards and had 44 total touchdowns for Oklahoma State. And from the looks of the video, he was just as unstoppable at Wichita North High School.
So take a few minutes and watch one of the all-time greats run around hapless high-school players. We're pretty sure the opponents in that video have been telling stories of trying to tackle Barry Sanders for almost three decades now.
