Abstract:

When the AFL's New York Titans began play in 1960, their future looked anything but certain. In fact, on paydays teammates would race each other to the bank, vying to cash their checks before the well ran dry. But then the players didn't do it for the money; they did it for the love of the game. The first player added to the Titans roster was a modest wide receiver from a small mining school in Texas, an NFL castoff who could run like the dickens. Country Don Maynard was an instant success. Three years later, the newly christened Jets started making noise in the Big Apple. And when the wily veteran teamed up with a brash, young quarterback out of Alabama, the Jets became the toast of the town. Now, more than 40 years after the Jets remarkable victory in Super Bowl III, Don Maynard tells his story for the first time, from his childhood practicing hurdles in the dusty cotton fields of Texas and throughout his winding football career that took him through the NFL, CFL, AFL, and then back again to the NFL and ultimately to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
