So your #1 favorite player is Dez?

No. Dez wore uniform #1. That’s how they are listed. That’s the reason some spaces are empty. My favorite Cowboy across my lifetime in all sports is…probably…Desmond Mason. My God how I loved dunking with him on NCAA basketball 1999 or 2000. That team with him, Doug, Montanati, Glendon Alexander, Joe Adkins and Mo Peterson…so filthy good.

Good call.

It is funny how numbers can get associated with certain players… for a lifetime. There are some numbers that are permanently associated with Dallas Cowboys players from the 60’s and 70’s for me. Some were among my favorite players and others not so much. Examples are 12-Staubach, 32-Walt Garrison, 35-Calvin Hill, 54-Chuch Howley, and 73-Ralph Neely. Neely was not a favorite player… I just think his number locked on for me as a kid since he seemed to be called for holding a few times per game. Seems crazy that my first number associations go back so far.

My dad was always a big fan of Staubach and Garrison. The Cowboys of my era were Troy, Emmitt, and Michael.
