Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame : Their Remarkable Journeys to Canton Hardback
by David Thomas
Troy Aikman. Emmitt Smith. Michael Irvin. Tom Landry. The names are easily recognizable as Dallas Cowboys, and their legacies are on display in one location: the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
Twenty-two members of the Hall of Fame were a part of the Dallas franchise; only eight NFL teams can boast more, and seven of those teams have been in existence much longer than the Cowboys.
In Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame: Their Remarkable Journeys to Canton, David Thomas shares the stories of these incredible players and the ups and downs they all experienced on their way to pro football's most exclusive club.
Each player's life story is told in such a way to reveal what led him to become a hall of famer, including childhood memories, influential coaches, the teammates who brought the best out in them, and more.
Cowboy fans will discover such details as the fact that Troy Aikman was the largest player on his high school football team-bigger even than the linemen-and that it was Michael Irvin's fancy last-minute talking with the Green Bay Packers on draft day that got him to Dallas and away from a cold-weather team.
In addition, each entry includes career statistics, a player bio, and his top five Cowboy moments, describing his greatest games and on-field accomplishments.
Cowboy fans have become accustomed to watching high-caliber players on the field every season, and Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame brings them the inside information on their favorite stars of the past.
All football fans will enjoy the chance learn more about the iconic players profiled in this book-legends who have helped shape the Dallas franchise and the NFL.
