Tony Dorsett is a former American football player who has a net worth of $5 million. Tony Dorsett gained his net worth as a running back for Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos before retiring from the game in 1989. Dorsett started his college career at University of Pittsburgh, where he was the first freshman, in 29 years, to be named the All-American and led the team to its first victory season in a decade. The Pittsburgh-born player was selected by Dallas Cowboys for the 1977 NFL Draft, signing a five year contract, worth $1.1 million - the second highest contact to be signed by a rookie. He remained with the Cowboys for ten years. In 1988, the four-time Pro Bowl player was traded to the Denver Broncos, where he led the team to victory that season. However injuries led to his retirement in 1989. During his twelve year, Dorsett delivered several record-breaking results: In 1983, he broke a 99-yard touchdown against the Vikings which is the longest run in NFL history. Dorsett also broke the 97-yards record set by legends Andy Uram and Bob Gage. In honour of Dorsett, a football stadium which is the home of University of Pittsburgh is named after him. His son is American football safety, Anthony Drew Dorsett.
Anthony "Tony" Drew Dorsett (born April 7, 1954) is a former American football running back in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos.
The son of Wes and Myrtle, Dorsett grew up in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh.
He attended Hopewell High School, where he played football and basketball.
As a high school sophomore in 1970, Dorsett started at cornerback, as his coaches did not believe the 147-pound Dorsett was big enough to play running back, the position he played in junior high school. In 1971, a competition between Dorsett and sophomore Michael Kimbrough for the starting running back position ended after Dorsett took a screen pass 75 yards for a touchdown against Ambridge during the season opener.
Dorsett ended the year as an All-State selection after rushing for 1,034 yards and scoring 19 touchdowns, while leading the Vikings to a 9-1 season. He also remained a starting cornerback on the defensive side. In basketball Dorsett helped his team reach the WPIAL quarterfinals.
In 1998 he got again an All-state Selection, after setting a single game rushing record with 247 yards against Sharon, a single season rushing record with 1,238 yards and the career rushing record with 2,272 yards, while leading the Vikings to a 9-1 season. Dorsett was also a key player on the defensive side as one of the starting linebackers.
For all the ability he had, Dorsett could never lead his team to the WPIAL Class AA playoffs, because in those days the teams had to have an undefeated record. The team only loss in 1971 came against Sharon after Dorsett suffered a concussion an played less than a quarter, and the only loss in 1972 came against Butler while playing on a muddy field.
At the end of his senior season he played at the Big 33 Football Classic. This was the first time that his future coach Johnny Majors saw him play live.
As a tribute to him, the school retired his 32
