The 1983 Dallas Cowboys had a few players even the most knowledgeable fans would have trouble remembering. Punters Jim Miller and John Warren? RB Gary Allen? LB Scott McLean? TE Cleo Simmons? Most Obscure Player of 1983: Chuck McSwain For the Most Obscure Player of 1983, we are going to go with a running back. At Clemson, Chuck McSwain gained a total of 2,320 yards in four seasons with the Tigers. He also had one of his biggest games during the Tigers’ National Championship season in 1981. Here is a snip from a Clemson fan site: The Clemson tailback rushed for a career-high 151 yards and scored two touchdowns in the Tigers’ 29-13 victory over South Carolina to cap an 11-0 regular season in 1981. Six weeks later, Clemson beat Nebraska in the Orange Bowl to win the National Championship. There is even a video of McSwain from that game against South Carolina: The Cowboys took McSwain in the 5th round of the 1983 draft, and he made the team. He played in a game, returning a kickoff in a week 3 win against the Giants. And then, he tore a tendon on the ring finger of his right hand, and he was gone for the season. He returned in 1984 and returned 20 kickoffs in 15 games, but he never recorded a single rushing attempt. Like another of our MOP Award winners (Angelo King),  McSwain saw action as a replacement player in 1987. He played in three games for the New England Patriots. He gained a total of 23 yards on nine carries. That ended his career. He has since become a high school athletic director in North Carolina. Here is his bio page. (Now why did I pick him? Because I found his bio page. That’s why.)
