4: Fulton Walker, Super Bowls XVII and XIX

Fulton Walker is one of the most recognized kick returners in Super Bowl history.

Walker made his mark on Super Bowl history in SB XVII, returning a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown against the Washington Redskins. His kickoff return gave the Miami Dolphins a 17-10 lead heading into halftime.

His 98 yard return is still a Super Bowl record.

The Dolphins would not hold their halftime lead, falling to the Washington Redskins 27-17. Walker ended the game with 4 kickoff returns for 190 yards and a touchdown.

Fulton Walker and the Miami Dolphins would return to the Super Bowl two years later in SB XIX, facing the San Francisco 49ers at the end of 1984.

The former Mountaineers star returned 4 punts for 90 yards and two kicks for 15 yards against the 49ers.

SB XIX would go down as the duel between Marino and Montana. As we are all well aware of, Montana and the 49ers owned the 1980s, shutting down the Dolphins 38-16.

Fulton Walker ended his career, 0-2 in the Super Bowl.
