The Manliest Manly Performances In Football History

Robbie Bosco
It’s not often that a BYU quarterback makes these types of lists, but Bosco saved his moment of manliness for the most important game of his career — the national championship. The Cougars were on the verge of an undefeated season in 1984, but they needed to get past Michigan in the Holiday Bowl to have a shot at ending the season as the No. 1 team in the nation. That quest, however, appeared to end when Bosco tore his MCL and sprained his ankle in the first quarter. However, the tough-ass QB went in the locker room, rubbed some dirt on it, and returned in the second half with the Cougars down and rallied them to a victory and the national title.
