Don Maynard, a halfback from the Texas Western University in El Paso, spent one season with the Giants of the NFL and one season in Canada before jumping to the rival American Football League. In 1960, he became the first player to sign with the New York Titans of the fledging AFL. Maynard joined Joe Namath on a Titans team which later became the New York Jets. They led the Jets to the historic 16-7 Super Bowl III victory over the Baltimore Colts of the NFL in one of the biggest upsets in sports history. In his 13 years with the Jets, Maynard set every club receiving record. His career totals include 633 receptions, 11,834 yards, 88 touchdowns and 50 games with 100 or more receiving yards. Maynard was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1983.
