Most football fans remember Doug Flutie as the Heisman Trophy-winning Boston College quarterback who completed one of the game's most iconic "Hail Mary" passes to Gerard Phelan in the final seconds to defeat the heavyweight Miami Hurricanes in 1984.

Others remember him as a member of the Canadian Football League (CFL) Hall of Fame, yet few remember the 5-foot-10-inch, 180-pound QB for his achievements during his time in the NFL. However, that's not to say the way Flutie made up for what he lacked in size with athleticism at the NFL level isn't worthy of some serious praise.

While former Florida Gators star and Heisman Trophy-winning QB Tim Tebow is well-known for pulling out all the stops on these jump passes, it's pretty clear that Flutie had this skill mastered before Tebow was even playing high school ball.

Flutie played professional football for 20 years following a record-setting career at Boston College, bouncing between the NFL and CFL as a member of more than seven different franchises, including his three seasons with the Bills from 1998-2000.
