    Probably Katarina Witt

    Or perhaps Roger Staubach

    Eh, maybe Earl Anthony.

    Pretty close for me between Roger Staubach and Earl Campbell. If you put a gun to my head to pick one, I might just end up getting shot.

    Hard to say, but I can't remember watching any Cowboy as much as I liked watching Mark Messier...even though I was just a little kid back in 1994.

    I love Hagler too. But mine is Billy Hatcher. Probably not many people have heard of him. But he was an outfielder for the Astros back in the day.

    Loved watching Irvin growing up. Dez could rise to the top of that list if the team would actually use him.

    Martin Brodeur. Enough things cannot be said about how amazing an all around person he is. Best goaltender ever, consistently gave the Devils home town discounts, one of the most respectable athletes period.

    Yeah, I remember that. I made a bat in Jr. High on the lathe machine and I corked it because he was my favorite player. My little league coaches even let me use the bat in games. LOL I loved playing outfield and batted first like him. The Astros were my first sports love back in the day. I loved Nolan and Billy Hatcher, Mike Scott, Kevin Bass, Glenn Davis, etc.

    Love that team, too, but Drexler was my favorite player. Hakeem was awesome though! Before the Cowboys, I was a huge Oiler fan and Drew Hill would have to be top 5 of my all-time favorite athletes.

    The Cowboys are the only sports team that I have been loyal to and borderline obsessed with, I don't know why but its been that way since I was a kid but far and away my favorite athlete of all time is George Brett.

    Emmitt Smith for me. I was 11 when the Cowboys drafted him and that's when I really started liking them.
