White was the Dallas Cowboys’ first pick and the second player selected in the 1975 National Football League Draft. But it wasn’t until 1977 that he had his break out year, was named to his first All-Pro team, his first ProBowl and named MVP of Super Bowl XII with teammate Harvey Martin.
He continued to contribute strongly to the Cowboys until he retired in 1988 (coincidentally, also the last season on the sidelines for original Cowboys coach Tom Landry), having played 209 games in 14 seasons, only missing one game during that span. During those 14 years, he played in three Super Bowls, six NFC Championship Games, and accumulated 1,104 tackles (701 solo) and 111 sacks. This is why many believe Randy White ranks among the top ten players in Cowboys history.
