Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson, who made six Pro Bowls and was named First-Team All-Pro five times, turned 56 years old on Sept. 2, 2016. Dickerson has four rushing titles, 64 career 100-yard games and the all-time record for yards in a season (2,105) — a record Adrian Peterson came within eight yards of tying in 2012. Dickerson became the first player ever to run for 1,000 yards in seven straight seasons and got to 10,000 yards in fewer games (91) than anybody else in history — seven fewer than Jim Brown and 10 fewer than Peterson.

Lennox Lewis, the last undisputed world heavyweight champion and the first reigning champion to retire since Rocky Marciano, turned 51 years old on Sept. 2, 2016. Lennox was born in England but moved to Canada at the age of 12. As an amateur he won gold representing Canada at the 1988 Olympic Games after defeating future heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe in the final. The model of the modern super heavyweight, Lewis fought big, with a good jab and huge right hand. Much of his success came from his learning and adapting throughout his career. Nicknamed "The Lion," Lewis was 41-2-1 with 32 knockouts in his professional career (1989-2003).
