Billy Hunter (NFL)
When: 1955, Delaware Township, N.J.
When he went pro: Remember those Dos Equis (XX) beer commercials that touted being the choice of, “the most interesting man in the world”? Well, that’s Billy Hunter in sports. The former wide receiver spent a season each with the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins before turning to a post-playing career in law, earning his law degree at Cal-Berkeley. That led to his second career — as a federal prosecutor — and third as the executive director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), the organization that negotiates on behalf of NBA players. He was ousted from that role in scandal, but held it for 17 years.
