Drew Pearson Finally Gets In the Hall of Fame!
Drew Pearson, the legendary Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, finally gets into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As he got the call from David Baker, he learned that he was going in as the lone semi-finalist for the class of 2021.
Career Stats & Highlights
It is hard to believe that it was only eight months ago that he watched from his home in Plano, Texas getting the unfortunate news he would learn he would not be part of the Hall of Fame Class of 2020. Pearson reacted to that devastating news saying, “They Broke My Heart.”
In 1973, Pearson joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Tulsa. He went to three Pro Bowls and was selected as a first-team All-Pro for three consecutive years. Pearson was also a major centerpiece of a Super Bowl team.
His most memorable moment came, however, in a Cowboys game against the Minnesota Vikings in 1975. The Cowboys defeated the Vikings thanks to a 50-yard “Hail Mary” pass from quarterback Roger Staubach to seal the deal.
The official announcement on the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2021 will be announced during Super Bowl Week, on February 6, 2021, in Tampa Bay.
