Almost five years before Murray became the first player to be a first-round pick by both MLB and the NFL, he accomplished another first for a multi-sport athlete.
At the start of his senior year in high school, Murray played in the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game in Chicago. Then, just five months later, Murray played in the Under Armour All-America Football Game in Tampa. Thus, he became the first athlete to ever play in both games, although three more have accomplished the feat since then.
However, Under Armour’s love for Murray didn’t do them any good when it came time to sign an endorsement deal as Murray hooked up with Nike just before the NFL draft.
That's another win for the swoosh. "I want to be the best to ever play the game," Murray said at the end of his first Nike commercial.
