In 1961, Lee Roy Jordan ('63) helped lead Alabama to a national championship. As a member of the Dallas Cowboys, he was also a member of a championship squad.
In Super Bowl V, the Cowboys lost to former Crimson Tide receiver Ray Perkins and the Baltimore Colts, 16-13. The game is remembered for the 11 combined turnovers.
Dallas returned to the Super Bowl the following season to face Miami in Super Bowl VI. As a member of the "Doomsday Defense," Jordan and his teammates limited the Dolphins to a field goal as Dallas won their first Super Bowl, 24-3.
Jordan led Dallas with six interceptions during the 1975 season. He helped Dallas return to Super Sunday, but the Cowboys lost, 21-17, to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl X.
