Reggie Bush

Short bio: 

Reggie Bush, Jr. was born March 2, 1985 in Spring Valley, CA and is a running back for the Detroit Lions in the NFL. Bush received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Southern California, where he played football from 2003 to 2005. As a freshman, Bush quickly proved effective in carrying, catching, throwing and returning the ball. Bush was a consensus first-team Freshman All-American selection in 2003, and became the first Trojan since Anthony Davis in 1974 to lead the Pacific-10 Conference in kickoff returns.

Alex Smith, who now plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Bush were both finalists for the 2004 Heisman, making it the first time a high school had two finalists at the same ceremony. In 2004, Bush finished fifth in the voting for the trophy and was named the team's MVP. He earned consensus All-American honors and was a finalist for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. In 2005 Bush was a unanimous first-team All-American and winner of the Heisman Trophy.

Just before the 2006 draft, reports surfaced raising questions about whether Bush's family received gifts in violation of NCAA policies. The school requested that the conference investigate the matter, and Bush denied any impropriety. However, there were rumors the Heisman Trophy Trust would strip his award, so Bush in September voluntarily forfeited his title as the 2005 winner.

On January 12, 2006, Bush elected to forgo his senior season at USC and declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft. Bush was drafted by the Saints with the second overall pick. On July 28, 2011, the Saints traded Bush to the Miami Dolphins for reserve safety Jonathon Amaya and a swap of 6th round draft picks. Bush signed with the Detroit Lions on March 13, 2013.
