From the football field to the board room, Broadway musicals to graduate business school, Eddie George personifies what we think of when we hear the term Renaissance Man. His football accomplishments are legendary. A Heisman trophy winner and first round draft choice out of Ohio State, earning Rookie of the Year honors in 1996, it only got better. Starting running back for the Tennessee Titans until 2003, he was selected to four consecutive Pro Bowls, still owns virtually every Titans’ rushing record, and led his team to Super Bowl XXXIV before retiring after a final campaign in 2004 with the Dallas Cowboys.
