Bio

Eddie George is a former American college and professional football player who was a running back in the National Football League (NFL) for nine seasons. He played college football for Ohio State University and won the Heisman Trophy in 1995.

With his passionate and competitive spirit, Eddie carved a special niche for himself in the professional sports arena, particularly the NFL where he is only the second NFL running back to rush for 10,000 yards while never missing a start, joining Jim Brown. Only Walter Payton (170) started more consecutive regular-season games than George's 128.

In addition to the Heisman Trophy, George won several NFL Rookie of the Year awards in 1996, and was the Tennessee Titans' starting tailback until 2003.

Throughout his tenure as one of the NFL's premier running backs, Eddie not only possessed an explosive combination of speed, power and toughness, but was the epitome of durability.

Eddie's punishing north-and-south running style won him the 1997 AP's "Offensive Rookie of the Year" honours as well as four consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl from 1998-2001.

Drafted in the first round by the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans, he owns virtually every franchise rushing record. Eddie led the AFC Champion Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000.

Eddie's business life is filled with media appearances, entertainment roles, hosting Radio, By George!, speaking engagements and philanthropy.

Eddie finds his work with charities very rewarding, donating his time and money to various organisations, including his own non-profit organisation, Visions with Infinite Possibilities (V.I.P).

Eddie is married to Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George, a Grammy-nominated singer with the soul group SWV ("Sisters With Voices"), which sold more than six million records. The pair were the subject of the 2007 reality series I Married a Baller.

Taj was also featured on the Survivor television show in 2009, and voted one of the fan favourites. Eddie also made a guest appearance on Survivor.

Taj and Eddie live in Tennessee. They are the loving parents of two sons, Eriq and Jaire. They enjoy a busy life of friends, family and kids' sporting events.
