You cannot judge an athlete’s skills by his popularity as there as some players who never had the opportunity to become very famous but have proven talents. Brad Pyatt – a former NFL player who never had the chance to gain so much popularity but is considered by many experts as one of the most memorable and talented kick and punt returners to play in the league. Many new and untrained football fans may not know him or his legend, but he indeed made the league a bit more interesting when he played for the Indianapolis Colts in the early 2000s.
In 2003, Brad Pyatt became an official member of the Colt’s roster as its primary punt and kick returner. This was after he played college football with the University of Kentucky (four seasons) and the University of Northern Colorado (one season). After playing college football, he signed up for the Colts’ training and preseason where he showed so much potential as a professional footballer. True enough, the Colts’ management realized his uncompromised playing skills and selected him to play for the team. The management did not make a mistake by choosing him as he proved his worth in the playing field.
Loyal football fans cannot contest that in 2003, Colts made its biggest comeback in the team’s history and one of the most successful in the league’s history. The Colts was down 35-14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when Pyatt made an aggressive and successful 90-yard return kick. This helped the team to recover and to grab the third-best comebacks in the league’s history as claimed by NFL Films.
Pyatt had all the reasons to become famous but an unlikely event snatched them away from him. In 2003, while Colts was playing against the Miami Dolphins, he sustained neck injury. His injury made it very difficult for him to play again. However, he did not let his injury cripple his career without a fight. He attempted to recover from his injuries and to play again on the field. In 2006, he became part of the roster of three NFL teams: St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, and Pittsburgh Steelers, but his attempts went in vain. He later joined the Arena Football League (AFL) where he became part of the Colorado Crush from 2007 to 2008. Eventually, Pyatt decided to call it quits.
Pyatt is the most famous football player in the county but he sure did have the heart of a winner – he never gave up hope.
