About the Author

Dr. Bob Ward was born on the Fourth of July, the son of a World War I veteran. He came from modest means, a self-made man who eventually became one of the most important players in the evolution of professional sports. Ward earned his Doctor of Physical Education from Indiana University and studied sports science at its infancy with the U.S. Olympic team. He took that education and went on to implement it with the Dallas Cowboys in the mid-1970s, where he joined Tom Landry's coaching staff as the NFL's first full-time conditioning coach.

Mac Engel is a sports columnist with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He has written two books: Tony Romo: America's Next Quarterback and Texas Stadium: America's Home Field. He has covered the Texas Rangers, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, and Dallas Cowboys as well as multiple Super Bowls, Olympics, NBA Finals, Rose Bowls, and college football championships. Engel has served as an adjunct professor of journalism at Texas Christian University's Schieffer School of Journalism and currently serves as an on-air personality and contributor to CBS KRLD The Fan in Dallas.
