Charles Woodson Greatest All-Around Player Ever
by Ken Brown
(Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
Herschel Walker is the greatest college running back I have ever seen, but not the best all-around player ever.
That title goes to Charles Woodson from Michigan. During his 3 years at Michigan, Woodson was 3-time all conference and twice all-american.
On defense he was the greatest cover corner ever winning the Jim Thorpe award; the Chuck Bednarik award as outstanding defensive player; the Silver Football trophy as Big Ten MVP; the Walter Camp trophy as outstanding player of the year; and of course the Heisman Trophy.
On special teams he could return a punt 70-80 yards on the receiving end or come down on the kicking team and be one of the swiftest and best tacklers.
When he came in on offense as a receiver he immediately received double coverage and could change the complexion of the defense by himself.
During any facet of the game: offense, defense or special teams Charles Woodson could beat you.
I have no report if he pumped up the footballs on gameday.....
