    I'm an "oldtimer" myself, but I have a question regarding a player from just before "My time".

    Do any of you remember a TE that was in Cowboys training camp as an undrafted rookie in 1986 by the name of Glenn Ryan?

    Wow! The name does not ring a bell and I remember every player that was a Cowboy going back to 1966! Did he make the team?

    No one by that name has ever made the team. Not even the 1987 strike squads.

    Wasn't there a movie about him and all but one of his brothers getting killed at Omaha Beach?

    He didn't make the team. He was cut in the final cuts in 1986. They called him back to be a scab in 87 but he joined the army instead.

    Nope, and I remember a lot of obscure guys. That was the Sherard, Clack, Whalen draft year.

    He was my instructor the last 2 1/2 weeks. Big dude (he said his time in cowboys training camp was 'many doughnuts ago'). Really good guy. Just thought I'd pass the info along, but was wondering if anyone remembers him.

    What was he an instructor for? And is he enlisted or an officer? If I had to guess I would say officer since he went to college.

    He was enlisted. He's no longer in the service.

    He was teaching ICND1.
