I am not a Cowboy fan, being a Steeler fan precludes me from cheering for “America’s Team”. However, it does not stop me from acknowledging one of the great backs in NFL history, Tony Dorsett. After winning the Heisman Trophy at Pitt in 1976, Tony joined the Cowboys in 1977 and promply proceeded to lead them to a Superbowl championship over the Denver Broncos. A terrific back with amazing vision and blinding speed, Tony set a record that will never be exceeded with a 99 yard touchdown run against the Vikings during the 1982 season. I met Tony and his son Anthony several years ago at the NCTA convention and he was gracious and affable man. Here is a sketch of Tony (click on the sketch for a larger version):
