Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Donald Rogers Maynard (born January 25, 1935 in Crosbyton, Texas) is a former American football player who played collegiately for Texas Western College (now University of Texas at El Paso) and professionally with the National Football League's New York Giants and the American Football League's New York Jets and the World Football League's Shreveport Steamer. After having been released by the Giants, Maynard became the very first player to sign with the New York Titans in 1960 (the team was renamed the Jets in 1963). Although scorned by the New York press as an "NFL reject," in 1960, he teamed with Hall of Famer Art Powell to form the first professional wide receiver tandem to each gain over 1,000 yards on receptions in a season, with the pair achieving this milestone again in 1962.show more
