Mel Gray – The Greatest Video Game Football Player of ALL TIME

Say what you want about Bo Jackson in Tecmo Bowl.  Mel Gray was an unstoppable force on Sega Sports’ NFL 95. Much like Jackson, he had a combination of speed and elusiveness that made him impossible to catch in the open field. While Bo gets plenty of recognition for his in-the-console achievements, Gray is largely an unsung hero. I remember entire games where my offense never touched the ball, because Mel Gray returned every kickoff and punt for a touchdown. By my count, I’ve probably searched for Mel Gray videos once a year every year since the inception of Youtube, to no avail.  So, thanks, CruduxCruo, for posting this tribute to the greatest 16-bit player to ever play the game.
