Reginald Alfred Bush, Jr. was born March 2, 1985.

Bush won the Heisman Trophy in 2005 at USC. Five years later, he relinquished the award after the NCAA hammered the Trojans with severe heavy sanctions after an investigation to improper benefits to Bush and basketball star O.J. Mayo.

But NCAA penalties can't take away some of the breathless moments Bush provided for USC fans, including this dazzling zig-zag run against UCLA in 2004. (Bonus: Keith Jackson on the call.)

The Saints took Bush with the second overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, one pick after Mario Williams and one pick ahead of Vince Young. Bush had 1,000-yard rushing seasons with the Dolphins in 2011 and Lions in 2013.
