Denton, TX, October 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Legendary Dallas Cowboys receiver Drew Pearson and longtime Dallas sportswriter Frank Luksa have teamed up to co-author Remembering Texas Stadium, an insider’s look back at the fondest memories of Texas Stadium in a compilation of tales from some of the team’s most celebrated superstars and outstanding personalities.
In the words of such superstars as Randy White, Bob Lilly, Roger Staubach and Tony Dorsett, Remembering Texas Stadium (Zone Press, hardback, 200 pages) gives fans a fun and fascinating glimpse into what it was like to come out of the tunnel, walk onto the field and play in the Cowboys’ hallowed home—the stadium know for its unique hole in the roof.
Randy White remembers the intense heat that greeted him in his first late-summer preseason game there. Bob Lilly can’t forget the awkwardness of playing without a shoe during a goal line stance in the team’s first game there. And Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson recalls simply being overwhelmed by the mammoth surroundings of his rookie debut there.
“There” is Texas Stadium, where the Dallas Cowboys have called home for 38 seasons and have enjoyed a run that saw them capture five Super Bowl Championships, hundreds of victories and, of course, memories too numerous to count. Now, the stadium is about to close its doors, making all those memories even more cherished and worth retelling.
Remembering Texas Stadium gives Cowboys fans a chance to relive many of the great moments and memories as told by the legendary players who actually lived them.
