DeMarcus Ware is widely regarded as one of the greatest defensive players in NFL History. He is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and is a Super Bowl Champion. The former NFL defensive end and outside linebacker played in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos and earned a reputation of being one of the best to play in his position. He locked in seven consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl while playing for Dallas and a further two with the Broncos and named to the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team. A dangerous pass rusher during his career, he played a key role in the Broncos Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers, before signing a one-day contract with Dallas, so he could retire as a Dallas Cowboy.

In 178 regular-season games, Ware totaled 657 tackles, 138.5 sacks, 127 tackles for loss, 35 forced fumbles and 25 passes defensed. A four-time first-team All-Pro selection, Ware led the NFL in sacks twice during his career (2008 and 2010) and he is one of six players since 1982 to record at least 10 sacks in seven consecutive seasons.

DeMarcus was picked 11th overall by the Cowboys in the 2005 NFL Draft and has made the Pro Bowl IN SIX CONSECUTIVE SEASONS.

He is the Cowboys' all-time leader in sacks (117) and is one of three players since 1982 to record at least 19 sacks in multiple seasons. Ware recorded 7.5 sacks in eight career playoff games, including two sacks in Super Bowl 50 with Denver.

In 2016, April 19th was proclaimed “DeMarcus Ware Day” in the state of Alabama by the Governor for his achievements and impact on and off the football field. Ware is a member of the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame, Senior Bowl Hall of Fame, Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, Texas Hall of Fame.
