The Three-time Super Bowl champion and Hall of Famer Jerry Rice was the first athlete to participate on the show. Paired with Anna Trebunskaya, Rice became a surprise contender in a field of several celebrities with extensive dancing experience. The duo was just one of two pairs to never place in the bottom two during the season. Rice became an overwhelming fan favorite, but his advancement to the final caused some controversy because his scores from the judges were not as high as those received by some of his competitors. He ended up finishing in second place, behind former 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey in Season Two.   Image result for jerry rice

Our news staff was very lucky to be at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, on September 5, 1994, to cover the 49ers Vs. LA Raiders Monday Night Football game , (over 2 decades ago !), when Jerry Rice broke Jim Brown’s long standing record for TD receptions of 126. 

With all the subtlety of Babe Ruth’s called shot, Rice and quarterback Steve Young gave the 68,032 fans — and a national television audience — what they came for: a touchdown pass to Rice for career touchdown No. 127. That broke the record established by Jim Brown, the Cleveland Browns running back, nearly 30 years earlier.
