18. Herschel Walker – Ballet Dancer
The father of elite boxer Vitaly Lomachenko forced his son to study traditional Ukrainian dance to improve his footwork. Can you imagine an NFL star doing the same thing with ballet? Walker actually studied ballet during his time at the University of Georgia, where he would go on to become a College Hall of Famer.
In short, his fancy footwork must have helped him throughout a lengthy NFL career. He played for the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Giants. Then he made the step into MMA, winning two fights under the Strikeforce banner.
