Lee Roy Jordan is not only a legend for the Alabama Crimson Tide, but also one of the greats for the Dallas Cowboys.
Jordan was a member of Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant’s first national championship team helping the Crimson Tide to a 11-0 record in 1961. He would go on to have a great career in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys winning a Super Bowl in 1972 and finished his career with NFC Defensive Player of the Year and five Pro Bowl appearances.
He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983 and was the seventh Cowboy inducted in the Ring of Honor six years later.
The legendary Alabama and Dallas Cowboys linebacker joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to reflect on his playing days at Alabama, recalling memories while writing his book My Story of Faith, Family, and Football, becoming friends with Elvis, 31 tackle game against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl in his final game at Alabama, and the 1961 championship team.
Jordan will be signing autographs of his new book at the Bryant Museum this Saturday for Alabama’s homecoming from 2-4 p.m.
