There aren’t many who can boast of having as many Super Bowl rings as the New England Patriots' Tom Brady.
In fact, only one other man matches Brady’s five rings — former Dallas Cowboy Charles Haley. The big and fast defensive end made a living wrecking opposing offenses and terrorizing quarterbacks. He also played a key role in two of the most successful professional football franchises of the late 1980s and the mid-1990s.
Haley won two rings with the San Francisco 49ers and then three with the Cowboys.
The Alice Boys and Girls Club is bringing Haley to town for this year’s Steak and Burger Dinner fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 25. The annual event is at the K.C. Hall from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The dinner will include a silent auction.
Tickets and tables are available from Alice Boys and Girls Club executive director Rick Del Bosque or through the club’s website at www.bgcalice.org.
Haley is the latest in a long line of former Dallas Cowboy greats to speak at the dinner. Tony Casillas, a teammate of Haley’s from his days with the Cowboys was the guest speaker at the dinner last year.
Haley played with the 49ers from 1986 to 1991. He was signed by the Cowboys and played in Dallas from 1992 to 1996. He ended his career with two more seasons in San Francisco in 1998 and 1999.
His Super Bowl wins with the 49ers came in Super Bowl XXIII and XXIV. He won Super Bowls with the Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVII, XXVIII and XXX.
In his 12 NFL seasons, Haley recorded 100.5 quarterback sacks, two interceptions (nine return yards), and eight fumble recoveries, which he returned for nine yards and a touchdown. He was also selected to play in five Pro Bowls (1988, 1990, 1991, 1994, 1995) and was named NFL All-Pro in 1990 and 1994. In his first four seasons in Dallas, he was on three Super Bowl-winning teams: in 1992 (XXVII), 1993 (XXVIII), and 1995 (XXX). Haley and Tom Brady are the only players in NFL history to have won five Super Bowl rings.
