Tired of seeing the pioneers, trailblazers, and stars of Pro Football’s past overlooked for the NFL Hall of Fame year after year, author Danny Jones is committed to preserving the memories of football greats in his new book, Lost Treasures from the Golden Era of America’s Game: Forgotten Heroes and Legends of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s (published by AuthorHouse). Jones discusses the careers of 25 great football players and gives readers a glimpse back into the best seasons, longest touchdowns, and biggest plays of their careers. This book provides personal stories and insights of the legendary men who played Pro Football in the glorious past. Giving older readers a chance to reminisce, Lost Treasures will also educate younger readers about the players responsible for making professional football what it is today.


Lost Treasures is a nostalgic book during an era of football that often gets lost, forgotten, or is vastly underappreciated. The author highlights 25 of the best players of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, and the Super Bowl era. This was Pro Football’s golden decades. Most of these star players have been lost in obscurity over the years.


Some of the players in this book are Larry Brown, Billy Cannon, Wes Chandler, Isaac Curtis, Willie Galimore, Mel Gray, Abner Haynes, Jim Kiick, Ernie Ladd, Archie Manning, and Jim Plunkett.


The author’s selection of players is impressive: showcasing many colorful personalities and mavericks that were part of the shining era of the fabulous 50’s, sensational 60’s, and the fun-loving 70’s. Overall Lost Treasures is a necessary work-
with the flair and flashiness of the NFL today, many of the guys who paved the way for the league have become lost treasures. Danny Jones accomplishes connecting football fans both young and old to an era of football that has simply been forgotten. Jones hopes to help us remember the good times and players in an era when life was so much fun for most of us.
Lost Treasures is Danny Jones’ third book. His other two books are Distant Memories: The NFL’s Best Ever Players of the 60’s and 70’s and More Distant Memories: Pro Football’s Best Ever Players of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s.

"The NFL was a great stepping-stone to the rest of my life."
                                                                              Tommy Casanova

"One thing about looking back on my career, the moments were very
exciting, and if I had to do it all over again, I would do it the same way."
                                                                                                         Harold Jackson

"The 2 fastest things in the NFL during the 60's were the guns- a 22 and

a 45."
                                                                                                           Homer Jones

"The one thing that separates us from any other team that ever won a
world championship was that we simply never lost to anyone. We may
not have been the best team on paper, but we were the best team every
Sunday."
                                                                                                          Mercury Morris

"It's a fascinating sport. I think it's the greatest sport in the world. I was
privileged to have been a part of that game and to have played as long as
I was able to play, and to meet the people that I met and have the
experiences that I had."
                                                                                                               Lance Rentzel

"Football is a great game. It is a privilege to have been able to play this game.
For every single man who has and is playing, there are a thousand who wish
they could."
                                                                                                                             Jack Snow

 

Heroes of Pro Football's Past, Not Forgotten

 

New Book chronicles careers of star football players in effort to get them selected for Pro Football Hall of Fame

 

Reynoldsburg, OH (PRWEB) August 30, 2011

 

Tired of seeing the pioneers, trailblazers, and stars of pro football's past overlooked for the NFL Hall of Fame year after year, author Danny Jones has committed to preserving the memories of football greats in his new book, Distant Memories: The NFL's Best Ever Players of the 60's and 70's (published by AuthorHouse). Jones discusses the careers of 26 legendary football players and gives readers a glimpse back into the best seasons, longest touchdowns, and biggest plays of their careers.

 

"These outstanding players and mavericks of football made the game what it is today and have been forgotten as time goes by," explained Jones, who played amateur and semi-pro football for 12 years as a wide receiver in the 70's and 80's. "They revolutionized the game of pro football with their brilliant performances and were the biggest gate attractions in football."

 

The author's selection of players is impressive: showcasing many colorful personalities and mavericks that were part of the shining era of the glorious 60's and the fun-loving 70's. Focusing on legends like Roman Gabriel, Bob Hayes, Homer Jones, Don Meredith, Lance Rentzel, and Otis Taylor- many of whom are Jones' good friends- Distant Memories provides personal stories and insights of the great men who played football. Giving older readers a chance to reminisce, Distant Memories will also educate younger readers about the players responsible for making professional football what it is today. Jones writes:

 

These forefathers knew how to play football and were team players that knew how to win. It was these stars who helped make pro football America's game. My goal is to give all of these former players instant recognition and to help get them selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, where they deserve to be.

 

Often asked how much he knows about football and where he got all the information for the stories in Distant Memories, Jones replies that his life has been football. "I know the game because I played it," says Jones, who caught 302 passes for a total of 5,519 yards and scored 66 touchdowns- 15 of which were for 40 or more yards- throughout his career. "I interviewed the players- but I also did my homework," continued Jones, who has literally watched every televised football game, and most of the game, season, and team highlights, since the 60's.

 

Distant Memories is Danny Jones' most treasured book. His second book is More Distant Memories: Pro Football's Best Ever Players of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Jones has just released his third book titled Lost Treasures from the Golden Era of America's Game: Forgotten Heroes and Legends of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Jones lives in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, with his wife Tina and their cat Rambo.
