Speed, power and patience are just a few words that come to mind when thinking about Tony Dorsett. Having already won the Heisman Trophy in his senior year of college, Dorsett came into the league in 1977 with his head in the game. During the NFL draft, many scouts felt he was too small to play and did not want to take the risk. However, the Dallas Cowboys saw Dorsett as a must-have addition to their team. Dorsett proved the naysayers wrong and became one of the greatest NFL running backs of all time. One of his most memorable moments of his career came when he received a handoff from quarterback Danny White and ran 99-yards from scrimmage for a touchdown. This was the longest run from scrimmage in the NFL and the record has yet to be broken. He finished his 12-year career with 12,739 rushing yards. He went on to be inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor and Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1994. Dorsett never gave up and his hard work didn’t go unnoticed.
