    Book Description

    Bob Lilly is Mr. Cowboy. The humble man from Throckmorton, Texas, often called "the greatest defensive tackle in NFL history," shares his life's journey for the first time in A Cowboy's Life. Lilly recounts his humble beginnings in Texas, being the first player ever drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 1961, his induction into the Ring of Honor, and his passion for photography. It's all here: Lilly's innumerable successes, his injuries, the stories of what he did after he retired from the Cowboys, and what he is doing today. Well supplemented with many never-before-published photographs taken by Lilly himself, A Cowboy's Life is the real story of Mr. Cowboy, straight from the man who lived it all.

    From the Publisher

    "A man like that comes along once in a lifetime. He is something a little more than great. Nobody is better than Bob Lilly."
    --Tom Landry

    "Regardless of whether Bob was double-teamed or even triple-teamed, he'd still beat you. There were times when he didn't even confront the opposition at all. He would either jump over them, go around them, or strategically outsmart them by making the play."
    --Roger Staubach, from the foreword

    I can't wait to buy this.

    Met Bob a couple of times. He's slightly behind Roger on my all-time favorite Cowboy list. But just barely.

    Would be a good idea if you have a friend or family member who is a Cowboys fan.

    I used to get a subscription to Bob Lilly's Pro Report. Excellent read back in it's day. Too bad mom threw 'em all away.

    When will it be available at the flea markets? :laugh2:
