A Texas-based entrepreneur with nearly 20 years of business leadership experience, Randy Eastburg owns Valley Ridge Roofing & Construction. An avid sports fan, Randy Eastburg counts the Dallas Cowboys among his favorite sports teams.

A storied franchise that dates back to 1960, the Cowboys have had plenty of all-time great players, but it’s a current player who now holds the all-time record for touchdown receptions. Wide receiver Dez Bryant scored the 72nd touchdown of his career during the Cowboys’ Week 13 win over the Washington Redskins. In doing so, he surpassed Hall of Fame inductee Bob Hayes, who played with the team from 1965 to 1974. Bryant accomplished the feat in 103 games, while Hayes needed 132 games to score 71 touchdowns.

While Bryant has failed to record a 100 receiving yards in 19 consecutive games, he is still a valuable player for the Cowboys; the 29-year-old receiver has 58 receptions for 639 yards to go along with five touchdowns through 12 games this season. A former first-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State, Bryant recorded at least 1,200 receiving yards in three consecutive seasons from 2012 to 2014 and led the NFL in touchdown receptions with 16 during the 2014 season.
