Worse yet, Ty would find that Diane was selling the totems of his growing name to a local doctor, a white man to whom Ty had long looked up. The man was buying stock, getting in at crack-rock-bottom prices. “He thought I was going to do something with myself and he’d have some Ty Law memorabilia,” Ty said. “And it went on through when I was in college.” this hyperlinkThe only respite from Diane’s problems came two weeks each summer, when Ty flew down to Dallas to visit his distant uncle Tony Dorsett. He and Dorsett’s son, Anthony Jr., would work out with Tony and Cowboys stars such as Everson Walls and Ken Norton Jr. and listen to Tony’s tales, all the little backstories behind the nearly 13,000 NFL rushing yards and that surefire induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. More than once Tony caught Ty staring at his Heisman Trophy. “Man,” Tony jabbed, “you got to be a bad boy to get one of them.” That was the carrot, leading Law on every day. Not that he thought he’d win the Heismanhe knew his future was as a cornerback, and corners don’t win Heismansbut Dorsett was an Aliquippa guy, one who knew what it meant to have an old man working the mill and a family with drug problems, and he had made it out.
