  • (This article is about the American football player. For the Canadian hockey player, see Earl Campbell (ice hockey).) Earl Christian Campbell (born March 29, 1955) is a former American football running back who played professionally in the National Football League (NFL) for the Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints. Known for his aggressive running style and ability to break tackles, Campbell gained a reputation as one of the best power running backs of all time. He played college football for the University of Texas, where he won the Heisman Trophy and earned unanimous All-America honors in his senior season, as well as numerous other accolades. He was drafted first overall by the Oilers in 1979 and had an immediate impact in the league, earning NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Campbell was named Offensive Player of the Year and NFL Most Valuable Player by various entities in each of his first three seasons, during which he rushed for 5,081 yards and scored 45 touchdowns. With head coach Bum Phillips, Campbell's emergence in Houston coincided with the Luv Ya Blue era, a period of sustained success in which the Oilers made three straight playoff appearances. He was traded to the Saints six games into the 1984 season, where he spent his final season and a half before retiring. Campbell is a member of both the College Football Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame, and his jersey number is retired by the University of Texas and the Tennessee Titans. (en)

  • Scelto come prima scelta assoluta del Draft NFL 1978 dagli Oilers, in precedenza aveva giocato a football per i Longhorns dell'Università del Texas. Considerato uno dei running back più forti nella storia del football, sia che si parli di NCAA o che si parli di NFL, assieme a Paul Hornung ed O.J. Simpson è l'unico vincitore dell'Heisman Trophy ad esser stato selezionato come prima scelta assoluta al Draft NFL ed indotto sia nella Pro Football Hall of Fame che nella College Football Hall of Fame, ed è inoltre assieme ad Hornung, Simpson, Marcus Allen e Barry Sanders, tra i soli 5 giocatori che hanno vinto sia l'Heisman Trophy che il premio di MVP della NFL, rispettivamente i massimi riconoscimenti a livello individuale del football collegiale e professionistico. Soprannominato The Tyler Rose (it. La Rosa di Tyler) per via della provenienza da Tyler, sua città natale nota a sua volta come la Capitale delle rose della Nazione per via della coltivazione di rose su vasta scala, nel 1981 Campbell è stato nominato Official State Hero Of Texas (it. Eroe ufficiale dello stato del Texas) dal governo dello Stato del Texas, solamente il quarto texano nella storia a conseguire quest'altissima onorificenza dopo celebri patrioti come Davy Crockett, Stephen F. Austin e Sam Houston. (it)
