Hi! My name is Ryan Bush. I am an author, blogger, sportswriter, and an historian of the Dallas Cowboys Football Club.
On Dallas Cowboys Vault I provide all Cowboys fans with true tales of today and the forgotten memories of yesteryear, resulting in a broader understanding of, and a deeper appreciation for, the rich history of America’s Team.
Growing up in Texas, I not only developed a passion for watching the Dallas Cowboys on Sundays, but I especially enjoyed reading about them during the rest of the week. That led me at age 9 to start collecting articles from various newspapers about the team, a hobby from which soon sprouted my own personal mini-library.
When I was 18, those articles became a valuable resource to me in embarking upon my professional writing career, as I began authoring a weekly column about the Cowboys for The Clifton Record, an award-winning paper in central Texas. The column, which I dubbed “The Cowboys Corner,” was eventually picked up by four additional newspapers.
MY FIRST COWBOYS BOOK
After three years, I discontinued the column in 2011 to focus my efforts on finishing my first book on the Cowboys, which was published in July of 2013. The book, entitled Decade of Futility, takes the reader on a comprehensive, detail-packed 231-page journey through the year-by-year struggles of the 21st Century Cowboys franchise.
