More info from DCA on Ring of Honor inductee Randy White:

Out of the University of Maryland, Randy White came to the Dallas Cowboys as the No. 2 pick overall in the 1975 NFL Draft. He played 14 seasons in all and set a franchise record eight All-Pro selections. White was also selected to nine Pro Bowls.

White became one of the National Football League’s most dominating defensive linemen. In his career, White played in six NFC Championship Games and three Super Bowls, claiming victory in Super Bowl XII and co-MVP honors with teammate Harvey Martin.

During his career, White became known as the “Manster” – half man, half defensive monster. He went on to set numerous franchise records as the heart-and-soul of the famed “Doomsday Defense”. Astoundingly, White missed only one game in his 14-year career.

In 1994, Randy White was inducted into the Ring of Honor with teammate Tony Dorsett. The same year he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
