Rayfield Wright was an offensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys from 1969 through 1979. (In 1967 and 1968, he was a backup tight end.) His career was filled with All-Pro and other honors. He remains beloved by Dallas Cowboy fans to this day.

This book tells the story of Wright's life from his childhood through the end of his playing days. The reader gets a true picture of life in rural Georgia in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. We read of Wright's childhood and early education. We see how he got involved in sports and how that involvement led to his college scholarship. From there, we read of his drafting by the Cowboys and the whirlwind of events that led him to Dallas and a new life.

The book is enjoyable because it focuses on the details that make the story come alive. He recounts that his first trip to Dallas was also his first plane ride, his first stay at a nice hotel and a his first exposure to money in even a modest amount. He describes his first negotiation with Gil Brandt (at which his college coach sat in and helped). His trip to training camp soon thereafter (in California) was the first time he had ever seen mountains in person.

From there, he describes each season and how he played a role in so many famous Cowboy events that are now part of Dallas Cowboy history (the Ice Bowl, the five super bowls, the Clint Longley game, the Hail Mary game, etc.). He recounts his own brief flirtation with the ill-fated World Football League. He describes his relationship with Tom Landry. He discusses how he began an offseason career in banking and finance in preparation for his eventual retirement. (This part, if expanded upon, would be worthwhile for modern players.)

Most importantly, the book is heavily influenced by Wright's Christian faith. He describes his baptism as a child and the vision he had during that event. He presents his family's faith as a major influence on his early years. He discusses the influence that God had throughout his life.

The book is well written, full of illustrations (mostly from the collection of Bob Lilly), and flows well. He tells his story without the bitterness that accompanies some of the Cowboy books that have been written. He does not attack Tom Landry or the rest of Cowboy management. He does not blame his problems on racism, even though he does acknowledge the issue.

There are a few factual errors in this book that true Cowboy fans will instantly recognize. But there are fewer errors here than in most of the Cowboy (and other sports) books - whether written by former players or sportswriters.

As with many other books, the reader would benefit from YouTube. This book was written just as YouTube was in its infancy. Today, there are several YouTube videos in which Wright plays the largest role - his HOF induction speech, interviews, etc. He could not have anticipated this at the time he wrote the book. These videos provide an excellent supplement to the book.

Wright's book is an often overlooked angle on the Cowboy story. Many of the more famous players have written their stories. Wright's perspective is unique because of his faith, his lack of an agenda and the fact that he is not as famous as some of the other players from that era. This is not a mere rehash of the stories you will find in the other Cowboy books.

The book is great read for any Dallas Cowboy fan. The story of his rise from growing up in a poor house hold to becoming one of the greatest offensive lineman in NFL History. A lot of neat stories about his family but of course the big bulk of it concerns his playing career.

Review: Wright Up Front

DeVader, Jeannette. Wright Up Front: Dallas Cowboys Legend Rayfield Wright. Dallas: Emerald Press. 2005 221p, illus. $24.95 ISBN 0-9774401-0-9

This inspirational story of faith and family is a must read for Cowboys fans. At 221 pages, it doesn't take long. Wright's story is dedicated to his mother and grandmother. Others who played an important role in his life include his Scoutmaster, David Walker, and his coach at Fort Valley State, Stan Lomax.

The second half of the book includes a heavy dose of the Cowboys, with a chapter for each year of his career with Dallas (1967-1979). I don't know who wrote the actual text of the story, whether it was Wright himself or writer Jeanette DeVader. But the book for the most part is written in the passive voice, which grows wearisome after the first 25 pages. I suspect it is Rayfield himself, because that's how he couched his HOF speech (unless DeVader wrote his speech for him).

There's one minor error on page 155, where Wright says that after losing SB V to the Colts, DT Bob Lilly wanted a championship after being with the Cowboys for 15 years. In fact, Lilly was Dallas' first round draft pick in 1961, so by the 1970 season, he had been with Dallas only 10 years (Lilly retired after the '74 season after a total of 15 years).

Despite the minor editorial slip and the somewhat distracting passive voice, the book is nonetheless an inspiring read and one I highly recommend to fellow Cowboys fans.
