Walt Garrison - Biography
Walter Benton "Walt" Garrison (born July 23, 1944) is a former professional football player, a fullback for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League. He was selected in the fifth round of the 1966 NFL Draft (79th overall) out of Oklahoma State.
Garrison played 119 regular season and 13 playoff games for the Cowboys over nine seasons and still ranks fourth on the club's all-time list for average yards per rush (4.32) and is ninth in career rushing yards (3,491) He was also a cowboy in the literal sense, performing in rodeos during the offseasons and even, for a while as a rookie, the night before home games.
Garrison was a long-time spokesman for Skoal smokeless tobacco, and was the television spokesman for Bill Utter Ford near Denton, Texas. In 1988, he published his biography Once a Cowboy with writer John Tullius. The title is a reference not only to his rodeo cowboy career, but also to his career with the Dallas Cowboys, and his college career with the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
