Remember Bob HAYES

QUOTE Ralph Boston won 1960 Olympic gold in the long jump. He and Hayes traveled the world, rooming at track meets. Boston says the Tokyo anchor leg isn’t Hayes’ fastest.
« I saw him the year prior, in West Germany, he was even farther behind a German anchor man, and he ran right past him. The guy was so blown away that after the race he went into the dressing room, took off his uniform and handed it to Bob, » Boston said.

QUOTE To them, it goes beyond the numbers, which are impressive themselves. In 11 NFL seasons, all with the Cowboys, Hayes caught 371 footballs and averaged 20 yards per catch. One out of every five times he grabbed a ball, he scored a touchdown, 71 in all.
« Bob changed football, » former Cowboys tight end Pettis Norman said of his friend and teammate. « Before Bob came along, you saw man-to-man defense. »
