No one who saw it will ever forget it. In the final minutes of his college career, Miami running back Willis McGahee took a devastating hit to his left knee, buckling it backward and leaving the Fiesta Bowl crowd and a national television audience recoiling in horror. Surgery to repair three torn ligaments was set for Jan. 5, 2003, and the Heisman Trophy finalist promised he'd still fulfill his dream of playing in the NFL. McGahee embarked on a vigorous rehabilitation program. Encouraged by his progress and impressed by his determination, the Buffalo Bills selected McGahee with the 23rd pick in the NFL draft. McGahee did not play in the 2003 season, but won the starting tailback job and turned in a brilliant debut (1,128 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns) in 2004.
