Who is your favorite all-time Dallas Cowboys football player? I know the answers will vary depending on how long you've been a Cowboys fan or what decade you may have grown up in, but to me fullback Daryl Johnston is probably my all-time favorite. I was just six years old when the Dallas Cowboys decided to select Daryl Johnston in the 1989 NFL Draft, with their second round selection (39th overall). I was just beginning to get a really good grasp on the game of football and started paying closer attention to what was going on when I was watching the games on TV. I remember distinctively how my attention continued to gravitate towards #48 as the years progressed and the Cowboys began their journey to becoming one of the most dominant organizations during the early 1990s.
Daryl Johnston contributed to 3 Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl victories, helped the fullback position gain respect, and -- as his primary responsibility -- paved the way for the great Emmitt Smith, for whom Moose blocked all the way to the Hall of Fame.
