 Tony Dorsett Biography

Tony Dorsett is a former professional football player. A consensus All-American in 1975 and 1976 and winner of the 1976 Heisman Trophy as the nation's outstanding college player, Dorsett was the first player chosen in the 1977 NFL draft, by the Dallas Cowboys.

Dorsett was named rookie of the year after gaining 1,007 yards in 208 attempts in 1977. He led all Super Bowl rushers with 66 yards on 15 carries when Dallas beat Denver 27-10. Dorsett played with the Cowboys for eleven years before being traded to the Denver Broncos. However, injuries limited his playing time with Denver and he was forced to retire after suffering torn knee ligaments in the team's 1989 training camp.

Dorsett made the Pro Bowl 4 times during his career (1978, 1981–1983) and rushed for over 1,000 yards in 8 of his first 9 seasons. The only season that he did not reach the 1,000 rushing yards milestone was the strike-shortened, 9-game season of 1982, during which he led the NFC in rushing with 745 yards. He was a First-team All-Pro in 1981 and a Second-team All-Pro in 1982 and 1983.

Dorsett was elected to both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1994 and was enshrined in the Texas Stadium Ring of Honor the same year. In 1999, he was ranked number 53 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players. He is the first of only two players in history (along with former running back Marcus Allen) who has won the Heisman Trophy, won the Super Bowl, won the College National Championship, been enshrined in the College Hall of Fame, and been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.
