Your not so obvious but favorite TTU football player of the past???


TTU football news gets scarce this time of year. Having stated this, my appetite for TTU football conversation and news barely declines.

Who is your favorite football player that most fans would not guess? Why?

Mine is Boyd Cowen of the late 80's.

In the 80s era, it's easy to identify a favorite from the likes of Billy Joe, James Gray, Tyrone Thurman or maybe Wayne Walker. Cowen was the working class, blue collar sort of player who seemed to be oblivious to his lack of pedigree.

Not exceedingly athletic, big or highly acclaimed, Cowen had a high football I.Q. and a keen knack for head hunting unsuspecting receivers cruising across the middle.

He's my unsung favorite from the 80's.
