Jackie Robinson was a darn-good baseball player, but if he chose not to pursue America’s Pastime, it’s pretty obvious that he had a solid backup plan in football.

On Monday, a UCLA-USC highlight from 1939 hit the Internet. In it, Robinson (No. 28 on UCLA) can be seen dominating on both offense and defense. Robinson was one of four black players on the 1939 squad, along with Woody Strode, Kenny Washington and Ray Bartlett.

Check out the highlights below.
