Drew Pearson is an 11 year NFL veteran of the Dallas Cowboys.

He’s from New Jersey and began his football career at South River High School where he succeeded Joe Theismann as the team quarterback (yes that Joe Theismann).

In College at University of Tulsa he started a few games as a quarterback but was quickly switched to wide receiver.

Signed by the Cowboys after going undrafted in 1973, he became one of the NFL’s greatest wide receivers. Pearson was named one of the top-20 Pro Football All-Time wide receivers and was also named to the NFL 1970s All-Decade Team.

He appeared in three super bowl games and his one victory was in Super Bowl XII. He scored a touchdown in Super Bowl X (a losing effort against the Pittsburgh Steelers).

Pearson is the proud owner of three championship rings – his 1975 and and 1978 NFC Championship rings and his 1977 Super Bowl Champions XII ring.

In 2011 Pearson made the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor.

Since retiring in 1983 he has kept busy as a sports broadcaster and CEO of Drew Pearson Companies, a manufacturer of licensed headwear.
