2. Nate Hybl won a national championship in football at OU, but he also won a championship in golf at Georgia.
3. Jim Thorpe was the first player to score a touchdown and hit a home run in the same weekend.
4. Jim Brown, a Syracuse Orangeman, is considered one of the best running backs of all times, but he is also considered the best lacrosse player ever.
