Dallas Cowboys Dave Edwards To Appear at Bush’s Chicken with Ryan Bush

  by Bush's Chicken


Former Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl winner, Dave Edwards, will be making an appearance at Bush’s Chicken at Central Texas Marketplace at Hwy 6 and Bagby Ave in Waco on Friday, December 13 from 3 – 6pm. He will be signing memorabilia and talking Cowboys football, past and present.

 Dave Edwards is one of the original Dallas Cowboys “Doomsday” Defensive Linebackers from the 1960’s and 70’s. He teamed with Lee Roy Jordan and Chuck Howley to form one of the best linebacking corps in NFL history. Signed by the Cowboys in 1963 as a free agent from Auburn, Edwards would become a vital part of the team that came to be known as “America’s Team,” a moniker that continues till this day. He retired after the 1975 season and currently lives in Central Texas.

 Also appearing with Dave will be local author Ryan Bush, author of Decade of Futility. Decade of Futility is a non-fiction book detailing the descent of the Dallas Cowboys from the popular titles of “America's Team” and "The Team of the '90s" to the worst decade in their history. Texas author, Ryan Bush, formerly a weekly published columnist in several Texas newspapers, colorfully details the leadership of Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones to the pinnacle of success, then to the depths of despair as the first decade of the new Millennium proves to be the Cowboys' lowest. This completely family friendly account will provide Cowboys' Fans a coherent timeline of official managerial actions leading to sustained football futility and frustration for this popular Texas Icon. Decade of Futility is a must have book for all Cowboys Fans!
