Date of Birth

University of Oregon (1969-1971)


Ahmad Rashad was described as an exciting and fluid back whose breakaway speed, good moves and excellent hands made him a constant threat. As a collegian he was known as Bobby Moore, not taking the name of Ahmad Rashad until starting his pro career. When he came to Oregon, his coach said that he was "the finest athlete we have ever recruited." In high school he won the state high jump title and in basketball led his league in scoring. As a sophomore, he played wide receiver leading his team with 54 catches and made the first of three consecutive all-conference teams. In his very first game he turned in a three-touchdown performance. Wanting to get Rashad as many touches as possible, he was moved to the backfield the following year as he led the team in rushing. Against Southern California, he carried the ball 38 times and scored the game-winning touchdown. Yet despite his many carries he was still one of the team's favorite downfield targets taking passes from future NFL great Dan Fouts. In his senior year his rushing totals ranked eighth nationally as he became a first-team All-America. His two touchdowns led the Ducks to another upset win over Southern California. He was a first round NFL draft choice and was converted into a wide receiver. In 11 pro seasons he was a four-time Pro Bowl player once winning game MVP honors. While a pro he worked as a TV reporter moving on to become a full-time media member after his retirement.
