This Former Football Highlight Star Became an Olympic Bobsledder
Sam McGuffie was a viral football highlight star.
Sam McGuffie did not dream of being an Olympian. The 28-year-old, who will compete for the U.S. on the two- and four-man bobsled teams in Pyeongchang, South Korea, dreamed of a football career. McGuffie grew up in Cypress, Texas, and played football for Cy-Fair High School. The four-star recruit was the nation’s No. 17 running back in the class of 2008. But what made him nationally known was a viral highlight video of him hurdling over people. He says to this day, people still bring it up.
