    Tom Landry,

    coach, Dallas Cowboys, at the side of Jesus in heaven.

    He walked the walk and talked the talk.

    He was a great testimony for the Lord.

    Sammy Baugh,Washington Redskin Qb, DHB and punter. I still think he is the best qb and punter and one of the better defensive backs in the history of the NFL. He led the NFL in passing, punting and interceptions as a defensive back. His punting record is still number one in the NFL.
    He is about 91 living on his ranch in Texas the last I heard.

    In baseball it would be Ted Williams. He is gone, where is head is at this point time I don't know. Jack Hyles clamed he led him to the Lord on a tape of his I had back in the70's, but I don't know.

    I believe Dusek is a successful real-estate developer, now working to revitalize Waco, TX. (Town about which Friday Night Lights was written.

    All I could find out about Smokin Joe now is that he was busted in 2004 for hitting a woman. Evidently it was a minor offense, as it's not hit the tabloids.
