Ollie Matson - 1955 Bowman

Ollie Genoa Matson II (May 1, 1930 - February 19, 2011) (HB/FL) won a bronze and a silver medal, each in track and field events, in the 1952 Helsinki Summer Games. Ollie Matson starred at track and field as well as football at the University of San Francisco where in 1951 he led the nation in rushing yards and touchdowns guiding his team to an undefeated season. He received All-American honors and consideration for the Heisman Trophy that season. The Chicago Cardinals took Ollie Matson as the third overall pick of the 1952 NFL Draft out of USF. He was a running back for 14 seasons with the Cardinals (1952-1958), the Los Angeles Rams (1959-1962), the Detroit Lions (1963) and the Philadelphia Eagles (1964-1966). In 1952, Matson earned the 1952 Rookie of the Year honors with the Cardinals. Ollie had a sprinter’s speed, agility and an elusive running ability that placed him among the elite running backs in the NFL. Despite playing on only two winning teams during his 14-year career, Matson was named to six NFL Pro Bowl appearances – named the 1956 Pro Bowl MVP – and was a five-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection. Ollie Matson finished his career with 12,799 all-purpose yards (second only to Jim Brown), 438 points including 73 touchdowns – 43 rushing, 23 receiving, 3 punt returns, 6 kick returns and one fumble recovery for a touchdown. Ollie Matson led the league twice in all-purpose yards and three times in kick return touchdowns. Ollie Matson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1976.
