Each week during the 2009 season, we’ll get the opinions and predictions from a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. They’ll share their thoughts on the top three games of the week and run down all of the other NFL games on the schedule.
THIS WEEK’S HALL OF FAMER: TONY DORSETT, Class of 1994
A Heisman Trophy winner from Pitt, Tony Dorsett was the Cowboys’ first-round draft pick in 1977. He was an instant star. By the time retired after 11 seasons with the Cowboys and one final year in a Denver Broncos uniform, he had rushed for 12,739 yards and also added 398 catches for 3,554 yards. He holds the unbreakable mark of the longest run (99 yards) in NFL history.
Today, Tony is the Vice President of Triton Financial which buys distressed properties and turns them into desirable properties before reselling. He also is in the credit card processing industry. In addition to his post-playing career, Tony has been busy raising his children. In fact, just yesterday his one daughter signed on with a basketball scholarship at Oklahoma State.
Tony remains a big-time Cowboys fan and is a season ticket holder in Dallas.
