Walt Garrison Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Walt Garrison booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Walter Garrison is a retired fullback who played for the Dallas Cowboys. Garrison was drafted in the fifth round of the 1966 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State University where he was a two-time All Big Eight Conference choice.

Known for his toughness and dependability, Garrison took over at fullback after the retirement of Don Perkins in 1968. He led the team in receiving in 1971 with 40 catches and a 9.9 per catch average. He finished his career with 3,886 yards rushing and 1,794 yards receiving.

A "real" cowboy, Garrison spent time on the professional rodeo circuit during the football off-seasons. His signing bonus with the Cowboys in 1966 included a horse trailer. A knee injury he sustained in an exhibition steer wrestling accident at the College National Rodeo Finals in 1974 ended his pro football career.

Garrison was a long-time spokesman for Skoal smokeless tobacco. In 1988 he published his biography "Once a Cowboy" with writer John Tullius.

One of the more humorous sports quotes was attributed to Cowboy quarterback Don Meredith speaking about Garrison's dependability, "If it was third down, and you needed four yards, if you'd get the ball to Walt Garrison, he'd get ya five. And if was third down and ya needed 20 yards, if you'd get the ball to Walt Garrison, by God, he'd get you five."

Garrison has established the Walt Garrison Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
