Lee Roy Jordan
Lee Roy Jordan played linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys from 1963 to 1976. He was the Cowboys 1st round draft choice in 1963. The former All-American who patrolled the gridiron at Alabama did not disappoint. He was selected to five Pro Bowls and was twice voted All-Pro. Jordan anchored Dallas' famed "Doomsday Defense" retiring as the club's all-time leader in solo tackles with 743. Jordan helped the Cowboys advance to five NFC championship games and three Super Bowls during his superlative career. He was selected to the Cowboys Silver Season All-Time Team in 1984 and was inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor on October 29, 1989. Since his retirement he has successfully operated the Lee Roy Jordan Lumber Company with two of his three sons. Jordan was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2008.
