    Wow....this was a terrific piece of investigative journalism. So in depth, so moving. I really felt I was in the living room with him, replete with bear skin rugs and moose head on the walls....

    NOW

    Now, Johnny Hector is giving back to others with a group he works for, known as the Peter Sports Management Mentor Program. This is a group of former athletes that help mentor and support individuals looking to embark on a career in sports.

    Running back, turned mentor, #34 Johnny Hector
    A whole two sentences about our boy Johnny Hector.

    I guess I must be in the minority...

    5th leading rusher, 3rd in rushing TDs despite never really being the number 1 guy. Plus, he was just fun to watch.

    What are you talking about? Hector was a solid partner for Freeman McNeil in the Jets backfield. He had some very productive games.

    How quickly people forget. JH single handedly ran the ball all over Miami to get into the playoffs.

    I always liked Hector.

    He was a great compliment to Freeman.

    that's probably it. I've never met a long-term Jet fan that didn't like Johnny Hector.

    Roger Vick was a first round bust and a wasted pick.

    Agreed Hector was a great #2 back behind Freeman. Freeman got hurt because he always killed himself to gain that extra yard and Hector was the perfect #2 back at the time. Roger Vick I think scored a 5 on the Wonderlick exam and was a complete bust.

    The thing I remember about Hector is how they would always bring him into goal-line situations. He had a talent for hurdling over the scrum like an Olympic high jumper. They could never stop him from scoring a TD.

    I would be proud to have had a career as "awful" as Johnny Hector

    +1 Loved Johnny, and that was during one of our good periods.

    I would be very happy if the NY Jets could get 10 TD's from the back up RB this season. Johnny Hector was a Star at A&M and a decent RB for the NY Jets;

    Missed this thread earlier. Count me as a fan of Hector as well. Lots of fun watching him run.

    98 thru 2004 our starting RB only had 2 double digit years with 3 times the carries Hector got as a backup.. Hector had 11 in 1987 and 10 in 88..

    Are you confusing him with someone else? He was a great complimentary back to Freeman McNeil.

    I'm curious, why do you remember his career as awful?

    Me too, don't know which JH this guy was watching, but the one you and I saw was a real good RB, and a good guy as well. He and Freeman McNeil formed a fairly lethal backfield, was it Brad Baxter or Tom Newton who played FB with these guys, I can't remember?

    He was the best back up RB we ever had, there were times where he outplayed Freeman...always gave the team a lift when they needed it...You really are clueless

    We are just not agreeing on anything today. Hector was a very good back who shared time with an all time Jet.
