Historical Jerry Rice Milestones
Jerry Rice, nicknamed Flash 80, and the G.O.A.T., is without a doubt the greatest wide receiver in NFL history. The San Francisco 49ers legend holds just about every NFL receiving record which has immortalized him in football history. A Mississippi native, Jerry Rice played his college football at Mississippi Valley State University from 1981 to 1984. Rice's career as a MVSU Devil was immaculate, as he was named an All-American in all four years of his collegiate tenure. In 1985, the San Francisco 49ers made one of the greatest transactions in team history, trading up in the NFL Draft to select the record-breaking Mississippi Valley State receiver with the 16th overall pick. Right out of the gates Jerry Rice burst on to the scene in the National Football League, taking home the NFC Offensive Rookie of the Year award in his first season. From his rookie season on, there was no looking back for Jerry Rice. The receiver went on to lead the NFL in receiving yards and touchdowns six times after his rookie season. Rice really began to earn his GOAT nickname throughout the late 1980's and early 90's, as the Niners wide receiver was named to the NFL All-Pro First Team an incredible ten times while being a major contributor for the San Francisco 49ers in their Super Bowls XXIII, XXIX, and XXIX wins. If you can name a receiving record, there is a good chance that the two-time AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year has broken it. Rice put together an NFL career that football players can only dream of one day achieving. As a member of the 1980's All-Decade Team and 1990's All-Decade Team, Jerry Rice is widely regarded as the best player in NFL history.
