One of the finest offensive tackles in NFL history, Rayfield Wright ruled the trenches for the Dallas Cowboys from 1967-1979. The 6'7, 250 pound "Big Cat" was selected to six consecutive Pro Bowls from 1972 to 1977 and was named All-Pro four times. He was also voted NFL Offensive Lineman of the Year in 1972 and 1974. Wright played college football at Fort Valley State in Georgia and was selected by the Cowboys in the 7th round of the 1967 NFL Draft. He anchored a Cowboy offensive line that led the NFL (NFC after 1969 AFL merger) in total yards gained in 1968, 1969, 1971, 1974, 1975, 1977, 1978 & 1979. In 13 seasons with the Cowboys he was a member of 12 playoff teams and played in five Super Bowls. The Cowboys defeated Miami in Super Bowl VI (24-3) and Denver in Super Bowl XII (27-10). A leader on and off the field, Wright served as a team Co-Captain for seven years. He became the first offensive lineman inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor on October 10, 2004. He is a member of the Texas Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2004.
