Sweetness: The World Remembers Payton

It’s been nearly 15 years since Walter Payton left this earth, but the man known as Sweetness is still on the minds of many. From television to social media, people around the world remembered the former Jackson State star on what would have been his 60th birthday.

// “Obviously this would have been a big birthday for him, turning 60 this year,” his daughter Brittney told the Chicago Tribune on Friday. “I just think he would be so proud, and I am sure he is watching down and proud of that (milestone birthday) as a proud grandfather. It just would be a special day.”

Check out this video featuring his highlights as a record-setting career at JSU, courtesy of Fox Sports.
