Jones became the first football player from a
historically black college to be selected with the first pick of the draft when
the Dallas Cowboys took the 6-10 defensive end from Tennessee State to lead off
the 1974 NFL Draft.
Jones took over the starting role at left end on
Dallas’ fabled Doomsday unit during his second season in 1975. Two years later,
the Cowboys defeated the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XII.
Then, at 28 years old and in the prime of his career,
Jones left football to attempt a professional boxing career. The former Golden
Gloves fighter posted a 6-0 mark with five knockouts over two years before
returning to the gridiron for the 1980 season.
Crediting his boxing training regiment, Jones excelled
during his second stint with the Cowboys, earning three consecutive All-Pro
selections while appearing in the Pro Bowl following the 1981, 1982 and 1983
He finished a 15-year football career – all in Dallas –
as the fifth leading tackler in franchise history with 1,032 with unofficial
total of 106 quarterback sacks.
It was a career that nearly didn’t happen for Jones,
who signed with Tennessee State University with the intent to play basketball.
He left the team after two seasons to try his hand at football.
It was then that he earned his famous nickname. A
teammate remarked that his pants didn’t fit because he was “too tall to play
football.” The nickname suited Jones, who became a two-time All American
helping Tennessee State to black college national championships in 1971 and

An upcoming exhibit at the
Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU Texas will highlight the works of American
artists who used the lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea for their
inspiration. “Mediterranea” will open with a gallery talk by Mark A. White,
Director of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma and
Curator of the exhibit, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 14.
The touring exhibition is
comprised of works by 19th century American expatriate artists in Italy and
features works by artists such as William Merritt Chase, Elihu Vedder, Frank
Duveneck, and Charles Caryl Coleman. This exhibition reveals a specifically
American view of the Mediterranean that circulated in the late 19th and early
20th centuries. It will be on display through Sept. 1.
The exhibit is from the Graham
D. Williford Collection and made possible by the Graham and Jean Davoe
Williford Charitable Trust. Graham Williford was born in Fairfield, Texas, in
1926 and became a renowned art collector. His pieces range from the
“Mediterranea” collection, to other collections including silver pieces housed
in the Dallas Museum of Art and the American Silver Gallery.
Last year, the WFMA received a
$5,000 Arts Create grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts that helped
bring “Mediterranea” to the museum, and in turn, will provide valuable art
experiences to the community of Wichita Falls.
WFMA hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Tuesday through Saturday. Contact the museum at 940-397-8900 for more
