JANUARY

BARRY SWITZER

One of only a few men who have won a college national championship and a Super Bowl, Barry Switzer has put together one of the greatest coaching resumes in the history of football.  And, as much as he is celebrated for his dominant teams, Switzer is revered for his effervescent, off the-cuff personality.  Host Fran Healy puts the gridiron icon In the Spotlight.

ED "TOO TALL" JONES

A man who has led one of the most diverse sports lives of our time, Ed "Too Tall" Jones excelled both on the gridiron and in the ring.   He was a three-time All-Pro and Super Bowl Champion with the Dallas Cowboys as well as an undefeated heavyweight boxer.
