Former New York Jets Wide Receiver
Don Maynard Speaker Profile
Don Maynard was born January 25, 1935 in Crosbyton, Texas and was an American football player who played collegiately for Texas Western College (now University of Texas at El Paso) and professionally with the National Football League's New York Giants and the American Football League's New York Jets and the World Football League's Shreveport Steamers.
After having been released by the Giants, Maynard became the very first player to sign with the New York Titans in 1960 (the team was renamed the Jets in 1963). Although scorned by the New York press as an -NFL reject-, in 1960, he teamed with Hall of Famer Art Powell to form the first professional wide receiver tandem to each gain over 1,000 yards on receptions in a season, with the pair achieving this milestone again in 1962. Over the next 13 years Maynard put up receiving numbers that would earn him a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987.
A four-time AFL All-Star, he is sixth in all-time pro football touchdown receptions, and is a member of the All-time All-AFL Team. He finished his career in 1974, playing with the Houston Texans / Shreveport Steamers of the WFL, where he caught 5 passes for 62 yards.
