Jerome Bettis Parks the Bus in Memphis

The Bus makes a stop in Memphis Tuesday.

It's Jerome Bettis, former Running Back of the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bettis, now retired, dealt with difficulty breathing as an asthmatic throughout his career.

He told Kids at Lindenwood Christian Churgh Asthma does not have to stop a child's dream of playing sports.

<" And I'm trying that message to the kids now. They can still do whatever it is they want to do as long as the manage the asthma and get it under control. Then they can go out and be an NFL player." >

You can catch the Bus, in his new job this fall right here on NBC as a studio analyst for NFL football.
