NFL Legend Tim Brown and First Female Pro-Football Player Jen Welter join The ANE Show Saturday

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 is going to be one amazing special edition of The Automotive News & Entertainment (ANE) Show.  The gang is going to be joined by two very incredible guests, the legendary NFL Wide Receiver Tim Brown and a current Texas Revolution Indoor Football player who is grabbing a lot of headlines, Dr. Jen Welter.

Last Saturday, Jen Welter became the first woman non-kicker or placekick-holder to play in a men’s pro football game.  She suited up at running back for the Texas Revolution in a game against the North Texas Crunch in the 8-on-8 Indoor Football League.  Although Welter took her first carry for a loss, she got back up.  “I said, is that all you got?”  Welter said in a statement to the Dallas Morning News.  “They (Crunch players) were getting all alive, and I had to say something.  I didn’t want them to think I was intimidated.”

Currently Welter is getting goal line carries, but ultimately, Welter is looking to break down barriers and gender stereotypes more than breaking off long runs.  “It’s not really about me.  It’s about them and the future of the sport.”  Said Welter.  
Jen Welter has an impressive athletic resume, she represented Boston College in rugby all four years and was named the team MVP.  She began her career with the Massachusetts Mutiny, an NFL rules, full contact, women’s football team.  In her second season, she was named an All-American.  After her second season she relocated to Dallas and played for the Dragons for one year before joining the Dallas Diamonds in 2004, where she played 10 years and was named All-American 7 additional times and the team won four World Championships (’04, ’05, ’06, & ’08) and played in the 2013 Championship.

Welter signed with the Revolution in January of 2014.  She was a gold medal-winning member of Team USA at the International Federation of American Football’s Women’s World Championship in 2010 and 2013.  She is arguably the greatest female football player in the world, but she is already on the path to becoming MUCH more than that.  There is a great probability that future generations will look back in history and seeing this particular gender barrier coming down, and Jen Welter as the one demolishing it.

Throughout her football career she continuously pursued her education and in 2013 not only did she bring home her 2nd Gold Medal, but also her PhD in Psychology, officially becoming Dr. Jen Welter with the publication of her dissertation, The Wonderlic Classic Cognitive Ability Test as a measure of player selection and success for Quarterbacks in the National Football League.  She holds her BS from Boston College in Marketing, her Masters in Sport Psychology and PhD in Psychology from Capella.

 “We couldn’t be more excited to have not one, but two incredible special guests on this week’s show.  Between one Legend and another in the making, there will certainly be a lot to talk about and make for an entertaining hour of radio.”  Said James “Spin Doctor” Schaefer co-host of The ANE Show.
As if Dr. Jen Welter wasn’t enough, The ANE Show decided to double down and go for even more extra doses of “Awesome” and will be joined by former NFL Wide Receiver Tim Brown.

Tim Brown played college football for the University of Notre Dame from 1984-1987, earning the nickname “Touchdown Timmy.”  In his first year, he set a freshman record with 28 receptions.  As a junior, he set a record with 1,937 all-purpose yards, rushing for 254 yards and 2 touchdowns and catching 45 passes for 910 yards and 5 touchdowns in addition to a slew of kick-off and punt return yardage, becoming the first receiver to ever win the historic Heisman Trophy.

Selected by the Raiders with the 6th pick of the 1988 NFL Draft, where he went on to a storied NFL career.  He is a 9 time Pro Bowler and named to the 1990s NFL All-Decade Team.  He played for the Raiders almost his entire career from 1988-2003 and one season with the Tampa Buccaneers in 2004.  He signed a one day contract in 2005 with the Raiders to retire with the team, and the second-highest total yards in NFL history, 14,934.  He also caught 1,094 passes (3rd in NFL history) and 100 touchdown catches (Tied for 3rd in NFL history).  

Currently he is the General Manager and Co-Owner of the Texas Revolution and hosts a weekly sports-talk show on WAOR.  He is also currently starting a NASCAR racing team as part of their Drive for Diversity program.  
You definitely don’t want to miss this week’s episode of The ANE Show, so be sure to tune in Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. on 1190AM KFXR in Dallas or on iHeart Radio!

Drew Pearson and Randy White Guest on The ANE Show

Super Bowl weekend is coming up, and The ANE Show which airs Saturday’s at 9:00 AM on 1190am will include two of the most beloved Dallas Cowboys to share their insight, some history, and of course the latest car news.

The “Original Number 88” Drew Pearson, and “Manster” (half man/half monster) Randy White will be joining the ANE Crew for an hour of intense fun and excitement on February 8th.
The ANE Show is an hour long show every Saturday morning talking about Automotive, News, Sports, and Entertainment.  The radio show has had celebrity guest like Matthew McConaughey, Metallica, Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, and Ben Stiller.  All have shared wonderful insights on upcoming movies, and provided listeners with inside information into their personal lives.  Now, The ANE Show will have two of the most famous Dallas Cowboys in history share some memorable moments and talk Super Bowl talk with the newest radio stars that have hit the airwaves.

Randy White is a former American football defensive lineman and linebacker. He attended the University of Maryland from 1971 to 1974, and played professionally for the Dallas Cowboys from 1975 to 1988. He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame.

Playing both defensive end and linebacker at Thomas McKean High School in Wilmington, Delaware, Randy is considered to this day the “Best All-Time Player” in the history of Delaware high school football. Graduating in 1971, he was a star player in the state’s first annual Blue-Gold All-Star high school football game played every August at the University of Delaware stadium.

White was recruited by the University of Maryland and played as a fullback during his freshman year. While Maryland finished the year with only 2 wins, White did little worth noting during that year. During his sophomore season, new head coach Jerry Claiborne moved Randy to defensive end, noting that he had the skill to be "one of the best five linemen in the U.S." The move was a natural fit, as by his senior year, he was, as Claiborne put it, "as fast as some of the offensive backs I had coached." In that senior year (1974), he won numerous awards and honors, including the Outland Trophy, the Lombardi Award, and the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year. Though Maryland lost in the Liberty Bowl that season to Tennessee, Randy was named the game's Most Valuable Player. In 1994, he was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame and in 2000 was named to ABC sports All-time All-America Team.

White was the Dallas Cowboys' first pick and the second player selected in the 1975 National Football League Draft, and was moved to middle linebacker, where he was a backup to Cowboy legend Lee Roy Jordan, playing mostly on special teams his first two seasons, including his rookie season when Dallas lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl X. Jordan retired following the 1976 season, and his slot was filled by Bob Breunig, who held the position the next nine seasons. During his third season (1977), White was moved to right defensive tackle, the same position formerly occupied by "Mr. Cowboy", Bob Lilly, from 1961 through 1974, a move which in turn moved veteran Larry Cole back to his natural defensive end position (backing up Ed "Too Tall" Jones and Harvey Martin, though he did play left defensive tackle after the retirement of Jethro Pugh.

That year would prove to be his breakout year; he was named to his first All-Pro team, his first Pro Bowl, and (on his 25th birthday) was named co-MVP of Super Bowl XII with teammate Harvey Martin, making him one of only seven defensive players to win that honor. In 1978, White was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Year, and would be named to nine consecutive All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams. He would retire 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. At the time of his retirement, he had played the second most of any Dallas Cowboy in history. During those 14 years, he played in three Super Bowls, six NFC Championship Games, and accumulated 1,104 tackles (701 solo) and 111 sacks. His highest single season sack total was 16 in 1978. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1994. On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the naming of the only co-MVPs in Super Bowl history, Super Bowl XLVII, which like Super Bowl XII was played in New Orleans, Louisiana, was dedicated to White. (Harvey Martin had died in 2001.)

Drew Pearson who currently hosts The Drew Pearson Show is a sportscaster and former American football wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.  Pearson was born and raised in South River, New Jersey, and began his football career at South River High School where he succeeded Joe Theismann as quarterback.

He attended the University of Tulsa and started four games at quarterback as a sophomore, before being converted to wide receiver prior to the 1971 season. He caught 22 passes for 429 yards and three touchdowns his junior season. As a senior, he led the run-oriented Golden Hurricane with 33 receptions for 690 yards and 3 touchdowns. During his college career he caught 55 passes for 1,119 yards, six touchdowns and had a 20.3 yard average per reception.

Pearson received the university's President's Award as the team's "best spirited and most unselfish" member.

In 1985, he was inducted into the Tulsa Athletics Hall of Fame. 

In 1973, he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys, where he rose to become one of the NFL’s greatest wide receivers, earning career records of 489 receptions and 7,822 receiving yards, along with 189 rushing yards, 155 yards returning kickoffs, and 50 touchdowns (48 receiving and two fumble recoveries). Pearson was named one of the Top 20 Pro Football All-Time wide receivers, he was also recognized for his achievements by being named to the NFL 1970s All-Decade Team.

Pearson was named All-Pro three times (1974, 1976–77) All-NFC in 1975 and second Team All-NFC in 1978. In addition, Pearson was a Pro Bowler in 1974, 1976 and 1977. Pearson led the National Football Conference (NFC) in pass receptions in 1976 with 58. He served as offensive captain for the Cowboys in 1977, 1978, 1982 and 1983.

He helped the Cowboys to three Super Bowl appearances and a victory in Super Bowl XII in 1978. He also scored a touchdown in Super Bowl X.

In 1979, he and Tony Hill—along with Tony Dorsett—helped the Cowboys become the first team in NFL history to have two 1,000-yards wide receivers and a 1,000-yard running back, when he recorded 55 receptions, 1,026 yards and 8 touchdowns. Pearson and Hill also became the first wide receiver tandem in Cowboys history, to record 1,000-yard receiving seasons in the same year.

In 1980, the Cowboys selected Pearson as their nominee for NFL Man of the Year. Pearson is known as "Mr. Clutch" for his numerous clutch catches in game-winning situations, especially the "Hail Mary" reception from Roger Staubach that sealed the victory in a 1975 playoff game, one of the most famous plays in NFL history. He also caught the game-sealing touchdown in 1973 playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams and the game-winning touchdown pass from reserve quarterback Clint Longley in the 1974 Thanksgiving game against the Washington Redskins. All three of those plays were named among the Top 75 plays in NFL history by NFL Films in 1994. All were included on a video/DVD by that name. In addition in the 1980 playoff game at Atlanta, Pearson's clutch receptions helped win that game in a comeback by the Cowboys. In the 1981 NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers, Pearson almost rendered "The Catch" irrelevant when, in the waning moments of the game, he caught a long pass from Danny White that would've gone for a touchdown and won the game for the Cowboys had 49ers cornerback Eric Wright not made a one-handed tackle, stopping him just outside field-goal range (White fumbled on the next play, thus preserving victory for the 49ers and putting them in Super Bowl XVI). In 2009, on the NFL Network show "NFL's Top 10", in the episode titled "Greatest Dallas Cowboys", he is number 10 on the list.

His career accomplishments left such a mark with the Dallas Cowboys, that his number 88 jersey is reserved for the best talent at wide receiver. Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and Dez Bryant have worn it.

On August 19, 2011 Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced that Pearson had been selected for inclusion into the highly prestigious Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor. Pearson, Charles Haley and Larry Allen were inducted during the half-time show of the Cowboys-Seahawks game Sunday, November 6, 2011.

These two legends will sit in the Clear Channel Studios on Saturday providing the Super Bowl expertise and analysis of the game to a show that covers today’s topics of sports, entertainment, automotive and news.  The show is not your typical radio talk show.  There is a definite purpose to the hour long program.  The ANE Show which stands for “Automotive, News, and Entertainment” provides information for consumers and dealerships alike helping listeners find the right vehicle for their needs.  However, the show doesn’t take the typical approach to just providing the same information about the automotive industry every week.  The cast which is made up of Jim “Doc” Proctor (General Manager of Dodge City of McKinney), Jeff “Bubba” Thompson, Josh “The Guru” Deaton, James “The Spin Doctor” Schaefer, Paul “The Coolest Guy in Dallas” Salfen, and the beautiful Jennifer Reed also discuss today’s news and entertainment.  The “Doc” and “Bubba” have spent many years in the automotive industry helping put car buyers in the right vehicle.  They are known for providing great vehicles for fair prices, and even more for going the extra mile to make buyers happy.  “The Guru” and “Spin Doctor” created a patent-pending digital marketing company (DeliveryMaxx) that blends social media and online reputation to help any company, organization, or person that utilizes the web to share or sell their products or services.  To keep the show light and entertaining, Paul Salfen (best known for hosting the Drew Pearson Show) and actress/model Jennifer Reed talk about there every day encounters with radio, TV, and movie stars.

Every week the show is real and entertaining.  However, listeners determine what the show discusses and has immediate access to the radio cast through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms.

Nothing is filtered during the show, and it is designed to provide an hour of fun, entertainment, and relief to the listeners.
