The best Dallas Cowboy to wear number 30 started in 4 of the 13 games he appeared in as a rookie with Dallas. He averaged 3.1 yards per attempt and found the end zone two times for the Cowboys.

In the 1967 season, Reeves set a Dallas Cowboy record, scoring four touchdowns in a game against the Atlanta Falcons. The following season, Reeves suffered a knee injury and went out for the season after week 4. He was having a fairly strong season, numbers-wise, that year. Number 30 put up 4.5 yards per attempt and had 4 touchdowns before suffering his injury.
The knee injury would hamper the remainder of Reeves playing career. Continuing to wear number 30 for Dallas, he was able to play four more seasons, wrapping up his playing days in 1972.
Did you know...........that Reeves was twice named the AP NFL Coach of the Year?
