Mel Renfro

by Bob Gill, Mel Renfro Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Mel Renfro book, Mel Renfro: Forever a Cowboy, an authorized biography, relates the life journey of an early Cowboy legend. Unlike today, the salaries in the '60s were miniscule and the good players usually stayed with one team. When Mel Renfro was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 1964, the struggling team got one of the nation's top two-sport athletes. Not only was the native Oregonian multitalented in both football and track and field, he received high school and college All-American honors. If not for his love for football, he may have been an Olympic decathlon medalist. After Mel arrived in Dallas, Coach Tom Landry recognized his talents and started him in the lineup. Mel responded by setting team records, and he was selected to play in the first of his ten consecutive Pro Bowls, becoming MVP in the 1970 game. Being a member of "Doomsday Defense I," the Cowboy defenders who played six years together from 1966-1971 and led the team to the Super Bowl VI win, was the highlight for Mel. His play as the best "shutdown" cornerback for years earned him the Cowboy Ring of Honor, and after an anxious 14-year wait, a Pro Football Hall of Fame induction in 1996. Forever a Cowboy also reveals Mel's human side, discussing how he dealt with his life-after-football and the struggles that came with it. But the completion of the loop as a Cowboy legend was Mel's selection to the Hall of Fame in 1996. Today, Mel still lives in Dallas and wears his two Super Bowl rings proudly.

Download Mel Renfro book, After spending his entire 14-year career as an NFL defensive back with Dallas, in many ways Mel Renfro’s name has become synonymous with the Cowboys. Now, in this authorized biography from bestselling author Jeff Sullivan and Bob Gill, a friend who has known Renfro for more than five decades, fans have the opportunity to see Renfro as never before. With a look at Renfro’s dynamic athletic career at the University of Oregon—where he was an All-American in football and track and field—the book then discusses the Hall of Famer’s career with the Cowboys.

After his retirement, Renfro became involved in motivational speaking, and his voice drives this biography, which explores his triumphs and place, forever, in Dallas Cowboys history.

Also included is Tex Schramm, under whom the Cowboys had twentystraight winning seasons and who is considered the most forward-thinking NFL executive ever, as well as Randy White, Ed “Too Tall” Jones, Bob Lilly, Lee Roy Jordan, Mel Renfro, and more.
