Do You Remember #33 DUANE THOMAS?
My all-time favorite Dallas Cowboys players, in no certain order, are the following: Don Meredith, Don Perkins, Bob Hayes, Craig Morton, Danny White, Herschel Walker, Harvey Martin, “Crazy Ray.” And not one of these uttered my all-time favorite football quote. That was done by a man, who played a very short Dallas Cowboys career—DUANE THOMAS!
This extremely talented running back, born in 1947, played college football at West Texas State University with one of my favorites, “Mercury” Morris, after an amazing career at Lincoln High School in Dallas, Texas. In 1970, he played in the Coaches All-America Football Game!
Thomas was a 1st Round NFL choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 1970 and led the team in rushing his rookie season, despite not becoming a “starter” until the 5th game, and was named NFL Rookie of the Year. He then “starred” in play-off game wins vs. San Francisco and Detroit.
