Mike Rozier was discovered in high school by Frank Solich, and went on to own both of the Nebraska all time rushing and scoring records.
Solich was studying movies of another player in Rozier's home town of Camden, New Jersey. "Mike kept sticking out on the film," Solich remembers. Rozier was a Wishbone fullback in high school, yet still managed to gain 300 yards in a single game. He didn't miss that mark by much against Kansas late in the season, when he rambled for 285 yards and registered four touchdowns in another monster-score win for Nebraska. All through the year, Rozier maintained an average of nearly eight yards every time he carried the ball. "He's a super prospect," says Gil Brandt, Vice President of the Dallas Cowboys in charge of player personnel, and one of the finest judges of football talent. "He has everything it takes to be a successful pro running back." Mike Rozier takes such praise the way he takes an opposing defense - in stride. "God gave me this gift. I just do the best I can to use it," he says. Mike was chosen in the supplemental draft by the Houston Oilers in 1984 where he played for seven years. He finished his NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons in 1991.
