Roger Craig played running back in the NFL from 1983-1993 with the San Francisco 49ers (1983-1990), Los Angeles Raiders (1991) and Minnesota Vikings (1992-1993). As a member of the dynamic San Francisco teams of the 1980s that featured future Hall of Famers Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott, Craig captured three Super Bowl titles (XIX, XXIII, XXIV). He was a four-time Pro Bowl selection in 1985 and 1987-1989 and, in 1988, earned first-team All-Pro honors. An inductee into the 49ers Hall of Fame, Craig additionally was named a member of the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team.

In 1985, Craig rushed for 1,050 yards and also hauled in 92 passes for an additional 1,016 yards, scoring a total of 15 touchdowns. Craig notably became the first NFL player to rack up 1,000 yards of rushing and receiving in the same single season. That season, he established career-highs in yards from scrimmage, receptions, receiving yards and total touchdowns, earning second-team All-Pro honors in the process. Craig had a solid 1988 campaign, rushing for a career-best 1,502 yards and finding the endzone nine times. For his efforts, he was named both the NFC Player of the Year and NFL Offensive Player of the Year.

Craig was born on July 10, 1960 in Davenport, Iowa and played college football under head coach Tom Osborne at Nebraska where he amassed 2,446 rushing yards and scored 26 touchdowns.
