Troy Aikman is a Hall of Fame quarterback who played his entire 12-year NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys. Aikman was drafted with the top overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft by Dallas after a successful college career that started at the University of Oklahoma and ended at UCLA. As a rookie with the Cowboys, Aikman won the starting quarterback job, but struggled heavily and through 11 starts his team was 0-11. Aikman improved entering his second season in Dallas, and led that team to a 7-9 record which fell just one game shy of a playoff berth. The 1992 season was one of the many high points of Aikman’s career, in which he set career highs in passing yards, completions and touchdown passes while leading the Cowboys to the second best record in the NFC. Once in the playoffs, Aikman led the Cowboys to Super Bowl XXVII against the Buffalo Bills. Aikman completed 22-of-30 passes in the game for 273 yards and four touchdowns, earning him Super Bowl MVP honors. The following season, Aikman and the Cowboys repeated as Super Bowl champions when they again defeated the Buffalo Bills. Aikman led the Cowboys to their third Super Bowl in a four-year span in 1995 when Dallas beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX by a score of 27-17.
