After starring in football and track at Wisconsin, Al Toon was drafted 10th overall in 1985 by the New York Jets, where he played for eight years. He retired from football because of recurring concussions.

A three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver who played his entire NFL career with the Jets from 1985 to 1992, Toon retired at the age of 29 in 1992 as a result of suffering at least nine concussions over his eight-year career. Toon’s best year as a pro came in the 1988 season when he led the league with 93 receptions.

Nick hopes to continue the successful “Toon” legacy in the NFL..but stay concussion and injury free.
