Whiskered Cliff with Cliff Harris

Cliff Harris Mustache Cowboys

Cliff Harris is a former Dallas Cowboys safety. He went to the Pro Bowl six times in 10 years so it was a surprise to many when he retired at the age of 31 to focus on his oil ventures. At the press conference when he retired, a reporter told Cliff that he was a football player and he should leave the oil to the oilmen. Cliff responded with this:

“I’ve traveled over half our state to be here tonight. I couldn’t get away sooner because my new well was coming in at Coyote Hills and I had to see about it. That well is now flowing at two thousand barrels and it’s paying me an income of five thousand dollars a week. I have two others drilling and I have sixteen producing at Antelope. So, ladies and gentlemen… if I say I’m an oil man you will agree.”
