The memories he left Houston!!!A number of football players don’t want to rival their shoe size? But they well rival their height and weight, and we can determine their shoe size with a standard measurement scale. So Earl Campbell (who is number 7 on the list of all-time yardage gainers in the NFL) is 5’11” and his weight is 230 pounds, he should be a size 10 in shoe size. Some interesting information about Earl Campbell then and now career, but Yes, we carry Earl’s shoe size. We go to a 17 in men’s length and 15 in women’s length as well. Now if earl needs a wider width – we have up to 14 E widths in our line of shoes, and that is in Men’s and Women’s as well.
Earl Christian Campbell (born March 29, 1955) is a former professional American Football running back and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
His nickname is The Tyler Rose, a reference to his hometown of Tyler, Texas, which is known as the “Rose Capital of America” for its prominent place in the rose-growing industry. He went to John Tyler High School.
Campbell was born in Tyler, Texas, the sixth of eleven children. His father died when he was 11 years old. He began playing football in fifth grade as a kicker, but moved to linebacker and running back in sixth grade. In 1973, he led the Corky Nelson-coached John Tyler High School to the Texas 4A State Championship (4A then was the largest classification in the state). Then-Oklahoma Sooners head coach Barry Switzer, who unsuccessfully recruited Campbell, said in his 1989 book that Campbell was the only player he ever saw who could have gone straight from high school to the NFL and immediately been a star.
As a college footballer at the University of Texas at Austin, he won the Heisman Trophy in 1977 and led the nation in rushing with 1,744 yards. He was selected as the Southwest Conference running back of the year in each of his college seasons and finished with 4,444 career rushing yards.
Also while at the University of Texas, Earl Campbell was chosen as a New Man in the Texas Cowboys student service organization in the mid-70s. The Texas Cowboys are the student organization made up of campus leaders. They are also responsible for taking care of and firing ‘Smokey’ the Cannon at Texas football games.
Campbell was the first draft pick overall in the 1978 NFL Draft by the Houston Oilers, and in that year, he was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press as well as the Most Valuable Player.
Campbell possessed a rare combination of speed and power and was prolific running back from 1978 through 1985. His outstanding single-season performance in 1979 earned him All-Pro, Pro Bowl, and NFL Offensive Player of the Year honors. It was also the second of three consecutive seasons in which he led the league in rushing. Only Jim Brown had previously accomplished that feat. Campbell led the NFL in rushing in 1978, 1979, and 1980. He played in five Pro Bowls and finished his career with 9,407 yards and 74 touchdowns rushing along with 806 yards on 121 receptions. In 1980, Campbell’s best year in the NFL, he ran for 1,934 yards including four 200-yard rushing games, including a personal-best 206 yards against the Chicago Bears. Despite playing against stacked defenses and being gang-tackled nearly every time he carried the ball (a then-record 373 times), Campbell managed to average 5.2 yards per carrying and score 13 rushing touchdowns in 1980 alone.
In 1984, he was traded to the New Orleans Saints, reuniting him with his former Oilers coach O.A. “Bum” Phillips. The trade was controversial in New Orleans, as it was widely believed that Campbell’s skills had diminished, and the Saints already had the young George Rogers in the backfield. Campbell played a diminished role in 1984 and 1985, and retired during the preseason of 1986, feeling that the beating he had taken during his career had taken too much of a toll, a toll which has become apparent in his life today (see below).
Campbell is widely acknowledged as one of the best power backs in NFL history. Described as a “one-man demolition team”, Campbell was a punishing runner. His 34-inch thighs, 5-11, 244-pound frame, coupled with 4.4 speed, made him the most feared runner of his time. Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Fame defensive tackle Joe Greene claimed that Campbell could inflict more damage on a team than any other back he ever faced.
Former Heisman Trophy winner and former Miami Dolphins player Ricky Williams was often compared to Campbell during Williams’ days as a player with The University of Texas Longhorns. Even now, short running backs that use powerful legs to their advantage are occasionally nicknamed “Little Earl”, for example, Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars or most recently to some publicity with Gary Russell of the University of Minnesota.
The pride that prodded Campbell to stretch out every run over eight grueling seasons for the Oilers and New Orleans Saints also might have been responsible for his relatively short career. All of the pounding he absorbed, all of the bone-jarring blows from second, third and fourth tacklers wore down his body and prompted a premature drop-off in performance. Debate still rages as to whether Coach Bum Phillips hastened the end of Campbell’s career by overworking him; nevertheless, the consensus is clear that during Campbell’s heyday, few running backs were as productive or imposing.
In 1999, he was ranked number 33 on The Sporting News’ list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, the highest-ranked player for the Houston Oilers franchise. In 2007, he was ranked #12 on ESPN’s Top 25 Players In College Football History list.
The Statue of Earl Campbell at Royal-Memorial Stadium.
Campbell, Texas’ first Heisman Trophy winner in 1977, was honored at halftime against Ohio State on September 9, 2006. The school unveiled a new 9-foot statue of Campbell in the southwest corner of Royal-Memorial Stadium Saturday afternoon. The same year, Campbell graced the cover of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, an honor that eluded him during his playing days.
In 1981, the state legislature of Texas proclaimed Earl Campbell as an Official State Hero of Texas, an honor only previously awarded to Davy Crockett, Stephen F. Austin, and Sam Houston.
In 1980, Campbell married his high school girlfriend, Reachable Rena Smith. They have two sons: Christian, who ran track at the University of Houston, and Tyler, who currently plays football for San Diego State University.
Due to the countless carries in his NFL career and numerous hits on his body, Campbell has great difficulty walking and sometimes requires the use of a wheelchair. In 2004, ESPN showed a segment about retired and current NFL players who deal with chronic injuries due to playing in the NFL over a number of years. The segment showed Earl Campbell at a farm using a wheelchair. Campbell has developed severe arthritis in his knees and has debilitating back pain. He attributes his back pain to a congenital back condition aggravated by his football career.
A profile in the Austin American-Statesman in December 2007 describes Campbell’s daily struggle with his back pain and states that he had surgery to remove three large bone spurs
Being that Earl Campbell is a 10 (estimate size) in shoe sizes, and we carry 7 lengths past his size, we carry up to a 17 in length for men and for women we carry up to 15 in length. I don’t know Earl’s width but if he needs a wider width, “Extra Wide Shoes’ or “Wide Wide Shoes” then we have that for him as well being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is women’s as well.
I need to talk to the men out there. Is your 6E hurting your feet? I have received three calls this week stating that problem. This is why our 9E program has been an unbelievable success!!!! Oh, a note: all 3 of those men love their new 9E width shoes!!
All so what is so important about those FREE 3 sets of inserts. First, we are the only site on the internet that offers 3 sets FREE!!! Second, if your feet hurt on the bottom, it is because the lack of support and this is what these heat moldable customized inserts do for your feet. More foundation and they mold to the plantar(bottom) of your foot and creates that maximum support, balance, and comfort.
WE NOW HAVE 80 NEW STYLES FOR MEN’S, AND WOMEN’S IN FASHION FOOTWEAR added to our website. Also, we have a whole new division of 9E widths for men. We are the only internet site, on the web, to offer FREE 3 sets of inserts for every purchase of a pair of shoes for men and women. These inserts created an added support, balance, customization and added circulation to the foot! The reason for three sets, FREE, is that the material on the upper will compress down over time, and the material loses its effect of creating heat for added circulation benefits. So every four months you replace them, and you have a whole supply for One Year.
The question I get is “what does this have to do with the working environment?” Besides this being an interesting story and you as a reader to understand the need for proper length and width for your feet to be 100 percent comfortable. The fewer distractions and the better health, in your life, the more output and outlook you’ll have towards life and especially towards work. Meaning that you gain better status in your working environment, and your total daily production is not at risk. If your shoe is too large, too tight, too heavy (in weight), no support, wow what a comfort problem!! A SIGNIFICANT FACT, IF YOU HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT IS MISFIT IN A PAIR OF SHOES (TO SMALL OR WHATEVER) then you have a miserable employee, and production is the guarantee to be at a lower rate!
Women’s and Men’s Wide Shoes” then we have that for her as well-being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is men’s as well.
Health is the number one priority for any person but especially a person who is diabetic or has foot conditions. We also want to create the appropriate health for your feet, and this will occur by proper footwear and the correct inserts. This following information, you’ll be reading, is what is needed to obtain this perfect health for your feet.
Now, if we can get you in the proper footwear and hopefully you’ll allow these two items to be part of your lifestyle. These things will be working towards this success in keeping the disease out of your feet. We, at dtfootwear.com, can show you the proper footwear and the need to have the proper inserts to maintain this diabetes out of your feet. Footwear as to have fashion (that we have) but the shoe is to control upper support and off-load any problems that you have at the top of your foot. Now, if you have problems, on the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of the properly removable insert to correct these issues. Everybody feels that it is the shoe that solves all the problems for a diabetic or a person who has major foot problems and that is not true. It takes two majors elements to off-loading, corrections, significant added support and develops combined circulation, which needs to keep this disease out of your feet. All diabetic shoes need not have inside seams to create irritation.
Number one item: Proper shoes need to be a Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (that many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today).
Number two is Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Insert. Beside excellent support, added off-loading advantages, develops a better balance for walking or running and the added two percent that raise the temperature of the bottom of your feet and produces combined circulation to keep the disease out of your feet. What added pleasures and advantages to just one item. Oh, yes these inserts are provided, by us, FREE when you purchase a pair of shoes – unbelievable!!!!
Please take this blog very serious because if you could spend a day with us – you would not believe the different types of a complication of not having the proper footwear and inserts and not taking care of your feet.
So, how you see the importance of a Diet and the proper footwear make your feet healthy at all times.
We have the best athletic, casual, elegant designs, walking styles of men’s and women’s in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the length and the widths and where proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Any person that needs correct width needs to know that the shoes need an extension on the sole of the shoe to adequately house their foot with no hangover with their feet to the shoe. Meaning that every width, with us (in a good percentage of our shoes), have two widths wider at the outsole of the shoe? So if you need a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. So again no hangover for your feet and a perfect base for your feet to have all the support and balance that is needed.
A Comfort shoe is usually not a Therapeutic shoe, and a Comfort shoe usually has little midsection support. The lack of the Mid-Section support allows your feet to be moving forward and lateral at the same time. These two movements add a great deal more wear and tear on your feet. If you need a view of all our styles, please go to our site dtfootwear.com
We, at DTF, have grave concern for diabetics and their need for properly fitted footwear.
