James Forrest Kiick is a former professional football player, a running back for the Miami Dolphins in the American Football League from 1968 to 1969 and in the National Football League from 1970 through 1974. He was a member of the undefeated 1972 team, and was an integral part of the ball-control running game which characterized the Dolphins under head coach Don Shula in the early 1970s. Kiick played in three Super Bowls and is the Dolphins' fourth all-time leading rusher. He and fullback Larry Csonka were known as "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," in 1973 co-wrote a book, Always on the Run. They shocked the sports world in 1974 when they signed with the newly-formed World Football League.
