Jim Reeves

''Jim Reeves was there through it all. He knows the history. He knows the people. He knows the team. And here it all is, an historical look at the Dallas Cowboys, an historical NFL franchise if there ever was one. We can go inside that history, thanks to Jim Reeves.'' -Randy Galloway, retired sports columnist for the Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and longtime talk show host.

 

Revo is the author of Dallas Cowboys: Legends of America's Team, Remember the Alamo Bowl: Bram Kohlhausen's Epic TCU Comeback, and is completing a very personal look at the Texas Rangers 50 years of play, drama and assorted misadventures.

 

He spent four decades as an award-winning sports columnist/baseball writer at the Star-Telegram. Afterward, he spent a year writing columns for ESPN.com and is now a freelance journalist. Reeves is an honorary media member of the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame and a finalist for the 2017 J.G. Taylor Spink Award for meritorious contributions to baseball. Reeves was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his coverage of the sale of the Texas Rangers to a group headed by future President George W. Bush.

 

He was presented the TCU Schieffer School of Journalism National Ethics Award in 2007, the first and only sports writer to ever receive that honor. He and his wife Karen live in Arlington with their two granddaughters, Savannah and Brianna, their four dogs and their four cats.
