Jason Heath Sehorn (born April 15, 1971 in Sacramento, California) is a professional football player in the National Football League. He was selected in the 2nd round of the 1994 NFL entry draft by the New York Giants after starring at the University of Southern California. He spent most of his career playing the cornerback position with the Giants. Upon his release, he signed with the St. Louis Rams as a safety.
It is rumored that his nickname by other Giants' players was Hollywood, based on his upbringing in Southern California, until they learned that he grew up in a trailer park. He was then nicknamed Species for his athleticism. After a highly successful season as a cornerback in 1997, he suffered a debilitating knee injury, tearing both his anterior and medial cruciate ligaments, in the 1998 preseason game against the New York Jets while returning a kickoff. Though he returned the next season, his speed was greatly diminished.
He is most famous for marrying actress Angie Harmon.
