Bottom line: Back when teams had two-back backfields, fullbacks were still in vogue, and Larry Csonka was the best of his era. He had a career high in rushing yards in 1972 as the Dolphins, as a team, set the league’s single-season rushing mark.
Against the Redskins in the Super Bowl, Csonka led all players with 112 rushing yards and was in the running to be named MVP until safety Jake Scott picked off his second pass of the game in the fourth quarter.
Csonka was born in Ohio and spent his entire college and pro career either in Miami or New York, but he had the itch to move to Alaska in retirement and lives there today. He hosts many outdoors and hunting-based shows in addition to running a seafood restaurant in the Orlando, Florida, area.
Like his backfield mate, Mercury Morris, Csonka also is a motivational speaker, who's available for personal appearances.
