Reggie Bush : New Orleans Saints
           Running Back
Born Reginald Bush, this California native
came into the world in March 1985 in San
Diego. He grew up in Spring Valley where his
father worked as a campus security officer
and his mother was employed by the county
jail as a deputy sheriff. While attending
Helix High School, Bush showed a big
interest in athletics as he succeeded in
both football and track. Nicknamed The
President, Reggie later took his love of
football with him as he went off to college.
He has played a variety of positions as a
member of the University of Southern
California Trojans football team. Among
them, running back, tail back, wide
receiver, punt and kickoff return. Out of
all positions, Bush is perhaps best noted
for his status as a running back. In fact,
he is believed to be one of the best, if
not the best, running back in USC's history.
Among his many accomplishments with the
University of Southern California Trojans,
Bush was presented with the Walter Camp
Award, the Doak Walker Award, the Heisman
Trophy and was named the 2005 AP Sportsman
of the Year. As a political science major,
it is clear that Reggie Bush is talented in
both academics and athletics. His athletic
talent was immediately noticed during his
freshman season at USC, but became even more
so during the years that would follow.
As much as Bush valued his collegiate years,
he opted to decline his senior season in
order to prepare himself for the 2006 NFL
draft. On January 12, the announcement was
made that Reggie Bush would declare himself
eligible and is predicted to be the first
overall pick. Many experts believe that the
Houston Texans, who currently hold the first
pick, will select Reggie Bush in the 2006
NFL draft. Souvenirs, apparel and
collectibles featuring Bush's likeness and
jersey number are popular among football
fans everywhere. The collectibles market is
one of the largest revenue generating
sources in any sport. Replica jerseys, one
of the most popular forms of sporting
apparel, is especially desirable.
Fans, both NFL and collegiate, can expect to
see much more of Reggie Bush in the future.
As his NFL debut most certainly approaches,
eyes will be affixed to the news and the
draft picks to see which team will
ultimately select Bush. Whichever franchise
offers him a spot on their national team,
one thing is for sure. Reggie Bush is going
places and the adventure begins in 2006.
