Donny Anderson's success began at Stinnett High School, where he earned 12 letters in three sports and was named all-state, all-southern and all-america in football. At Texas Tech, the 6'2", 210 lb. halfback was named All-Southwest Conference three times (1963-1965) and All-America twice (1964-1965). In Anderson's senior season at Texas Tech, they finished second in the Southwest Conference and carried an 8-2 record to the 1965 Gator Bowl where he was named MVP. Anderson was a first round choice for both the Green Bay Packers and the Houston Oilers, but signed with Green Bay in 1966 for the largest rookie contract in NFL history. He excelled as a runner, receiver, and punter and rushed for 4,696 yards and scored 55 touchdowns during his NFL career. Anderson was a member of the Packers' 1966 and 1967 championship teams that won Super Bowls I and II. He was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1984.
