“You are here be­cause you love the game. I am here be­cause I love it too,” Dal­las Cow­boys owner Jones told the au­di­ence as­sem­bled to see his in­duc­tion to the Pro Foot­ball Hall of Fame in Au­gust. Jones’ route to Can­ton, Ohio, started with his co-cap­tain­ing the Univer­sity of Arkansas foot­ball team dur­ing the Ra­zor­backs’ 1964 na­tional cham­pi­onship run. His play­ing ca­reer ended there, and he went on to make a small for­tune in real es­tate as well as from oil and gas be­fore buy­ing the Cow­boys for $150 mil­lion in 1989. “Amer­ica’s Team” is now worth $4.8 billion and has topped Forbes’ list of the most valu­able NFL teams for 11 straight years.
