Author Information


Danny Jones is 69 years old (born in 1953) and lives with his wife, Tina, in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. Danny's love and passion for football began during the early 60's- Pro Football's golden decade. He played amateur and semi-pro football for over a decade during the 70's and 80's. Danny was a wide receiver and compiled some outstanding statistics during his career. He caught 302 passes for 5,519 yards and 66 touchdowns. Danny scored 15 touchdowns of 40 or more yards. He wore #19 like his football hero and idol- star receiver Lance Rentzel of the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams. Danny enjoys the simple pleasures of life. He cherishes time spent with his loving wife, Tina, and his 2 pretty cats, Rambo and Phoebe. The reason for these books is to give former NFL stars of the 50's, 60's, and 70's the recognition they deserve so they can be chosen to the Hall of Fame where they should be. Danny has written 6 football books, including his new e-book about the football career of superstar Gale Sayers- A Class Act, an Outstanding Person, and a Legend for All Seasons (2021). His most current book is Trailblazers and Unsung Heroes (2018).
