Reginald Alfred "Reggie" Bush, Jr. (born March 2, 1985) is an American football running back for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Southern California (USC), where he earned consensus All-American honors twice, and was recognized as the top college player with the sport's most prestigious individual honor, the Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints second overall in the 2006 NFL Draft. Bush won a Super Bowl title with the Saints in 2010, and has also played for the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions.
Bush also won the 2005 Doak Walker and Walter Camp awards. However, allegations he received improper benefits were central to an NCAA investigation of the USC football program that led to severe NCAA sanctions against USC, including a two-year postseason ban and the vacating of wins from the 2004–05 championship season. As a result, Bush voluntarily forfeited his Heisman Trophy.
