Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers
By UtahHusker7
The 1972 Heisman winner, Rodgers is widely considered to be Nebraska’s greatest player ever, and is highly revered. After an injury-plauged pro career, Rodgers proved that an interest in sports can translate into many business opportunities. He currently operates a sports marketing firm and a bedding company in Nebraska, and is in the process of opening a sports bar. Rodgers authored the book An Era of Greatness about Nebraska football, and he works with the university to encourage dropouts to return to school.

Johnny Rodgers played three years at wingback in Bob Devaney's offense. Nebraska won three Big 8 Conference titles and was national champion in 1970 and 1971. Rodgers was all-conference three times, consensus All-America in 1971 and unanimous All-America in 1972. Also in 1972, he won the Heisman Trophy and was named Player of the Year by ABC. In his career he carried the ball 130 times and averaged 5.7 yards a try. He caught 143 passes and averaged a gain of 17.3 yards. He had 133 kick returns and averaged 17.8. When the stats are combined into a category called all-purpose running, they show 406 plays and an average of 13.8, a record. He had a jittery, swirling running style. In 1971 Nebraska and Oklahoma met in a duel of teams ranked 1 and 2. Oklahoma led 31-28 late in the game. Rodgers made a 72-yard punt return. And Nebraska won 35-31. After the 1971 season, Nebraska was in the Orange Bowl against Alabama. Rodgers had a 77-yard punt return. After the 1972 season Nebraska beat Notre Dame 40-6 in the Orange Bowl. Rodgers scored four touchdowns and passed for a fifth. Rodgers stood 5-9 and weighed 173. His high school was Omaha Tech. He played pro with Montreal in the Canadian Football League 1973-76 and San Diego in the NFL 1977-78.
