Reginald Alfred Bush, Jr., usually known as Reggie Bush, was born in Spring Valley, California on March 2, 1985. A running back for the Detroit Lions, he previously played for both the New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins and is a one-time Super Bowl champion.

After attending Helix High School in La Mesa, California, Bush accepted an athletic scholarship at the University of Southern California. He enjoyed a hugely successful career with the USC Trojans, in which he was twice named as a consensus All-American. In 2003, the Trojans were named as National Champions by the Associated Press and in 2004, they won the BCS National Championship Game. In 2005, Bush won the Heisman Trophy and the Walter Camp Award and was named as the AP College Football Player of the Year.

However, following an investigation into improper benefits in 2010, it was revealed that Bush and his family had received various gifts which violated the rules of the NCAA. As a result, a number of sanctions were imposed on the school and the University of Southern California was asked to disassociate itself from the player. Bush, for his part, voluntarily forfeited his Heisman Trophy, becoming the first winner to ever do so.

Following his junior season at college, Bush opted to bypass his senior year in order to enter the 2006 NFL Draft and was widely expected to be the first overall pick, until the Houston Texans selected Mario Williams instead. During the draft, Bush was selected in the first round, as the second overall pick, by the New Orleans Saints. In his rookie season, he helped the team to reach the NFC Championship Game and in 2009, he helped the Saints to reach Super Bowl XLIV, where they were eventually victorious, beating the Indianapolis Colts 31-17.

After a 2010 season which was disrupted by injury and the investigation into his career at USC, Bush was traded to the Miami Dolphins in July 2011 and spent two seasons with the team. He was twice named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week and passed the 1,000 rushing yards mark for the first time in 2011. In March 2013, Bush joined the Detroit Lions and in the 2013 season, he broke the 1,000 yard rushing mark for the second time in his career.
