One of the Unsung Heroes in Dallas Sports History is Abner Haynes . For those of you who don't know him , before it was Emmitt , before it was Tony Dorsett , there was Abner Haynes . Abner Haynes was the first back on a Dallas Football championship. Abner played for the Dallas Texans-KansasCity Chiefs football teams where he still holds ten records .The Dallas Texans AFL Champions . I like to thank Abner for all he has done , a fantastic individual a pioneer of football . He was the featured football player in North Texas at the onset of the Civil Rights Era .Prior to playing professional football , he helped to integrate the University of North Texas in 1956. In a time when you could count blacks on a football team , he had the the opportunity by the virtue of stepping on the field to become a civil rights pioneer because of the unofficial quota system in Texas college football. Abner Haynes professional career thrived in the Dallas Texans football system led by Coach Hank Stram .
IN THE WEBSITE: //httpinterviewswithblackentrepreneurs.com/abner-haynes/ "He was a franchise player before they talked about franchise players," praised Stram. "He did it all — rushing, receiving, kickoff returns, punt returns. He gave us the dimension we needed to be a good team in Dallas." During his 8 professional seasons, Haynes carried the ball 1,036 times for 4,630 yards, a 4.7 average; caught 287 passes for 3,535 yards, a 12.3 average, and 20 touchdowns; returned 85 punts for 875 yards, a 10.3 average, and 1 touchdown; and ran back 121 kickoffs for 3,025 yards, a 25.0 average.His 12,065 combined yards is the American Football League record.
The former University of North Texas alum was an Amazing back that has been overlooked in North Texas football lore. Abner Haynes was the first ever AFL Rookie of the Year , and the first ever AFL MVP ! ABNER HAYNES - TEXAS FOOTBALL lEGEND
Thank you Abner , but most of all thank you for helping integrate the University of North Texas.
You are a Legend, a football player ,but above all else a Dallas Sports Legend ! You helped bring the first football championship to Dallas !
The presidential sweepstakes for 2012 back in stride again . Another week ,another GOP front runner bites the dust. Before we get to the videos. Let's look at the facts , Herman Cain is a smart man . A man with his some ideas that needed to be heard . Pretty simple , but it got your attention didn't it.
I was happy that he was the front runner ,and yeah , you can say it was a black thing if you want too . However look at this way , that day the Democratic president was black , the GOP front runner was black. Ain't America a great good country. Shouldn't America be about ideas and not about race.
I would like to see how he would have fared in a debate against President Obama . Here is a clip of 'The Godfather' Herman Cain versus President Bill Clinton in 1994 .
Herman Cain was getting the job done . Any man that can a balance a family, handle his outside women , and balance running a corporation ,certainly can balance the budget.
Okay Okay ... Okay all this drama about Cain and the women , enuff. Cain ain't no different than any other presidential candidate who had their women issues . Bill Clinton , Gary Hart , all of them smooth operators .... So Herman was a Smooth Operator !
And now we bring you live Herman Big Daddy Cain's announcement regarding his campaign LIVE AT THE APOLLO !
