O.J. Simpson was born on July 09, 1947.
As of July 07, 2020, he is 72 years old.
O.J. was born and raised in San Francisco, California.
He starred in football in high school there by the Bay, though a mediocre academic record limited his opportunities to a local college.
After a year of JuCo ball, though, O.J. ran himself into the limelight … and a football scholarship at USC.
With the Trojans, Juice led the nation in rushing in both 1967 and 1968, copping the Heisman Trophy the latter year.
A distinguished NFL career with the lowly Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers established Simpson as one of the greatest running backs of all-time and gained him enshrinement in the football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
After a successful transition to acting, O.J. became infamous in 1994 when his wife and a friend were murdered at her house.
Did O.J. kill Nicole Brown-Simpson?
A jury said no, then another civil court said yes … and then Juice went to prison for kidnapping, etc., in another high-profile case.
