Welcome to the Official Website of Troy Aikman and Aikman Enterprises. Troy Aikman has harnessed the drive and dedication that formed the foundation of his Hall of Fame football career with the Dallas Cowboys in numerous successful business ventures since retiring from the game following the 2000 season. Aikman has prospered in business ranging from owning car dealerships; co-owning (along with Roger Staubach) a NASCAR team, HOF Racing; minority owner of the San Diego Padres and in 2022, founding EIGHT Brewing Company. The Texas launch of the EIGHT Elite Light Lager took the category by storm, becoming the fastest independent launch of any beer brand in the state’s history and cracking the top ten growth brands of the year, despite its distribution in only the state of Texas. Troy and his partners continue to build on what they believe will be the next great American beer brand.
After leaving the playing field in 2001, Aikman joined the NFL on FOX full-time as a game analyst. He quickly displayed the accuracy and work ethic that marked his playing career and moved up to FOX’s No. 1 broadcast crew prior to the 2002 season. Teamed with Emmy Award-winning play-by-play announcer, Joe Buck, the duo has impressed both critics and fans with the consistently entertaining and informative brand of coverage they provide. Highly skilled at succinctly illustrating action on the field, Aikman’s contemporary analysis offers keen insight into the skill and pressure associated with playing in today’s NFL. In 2022, Troy and Joe moved to ESPN MNF to continue their broadcasting as a team. Together, they have called six Super Bowls (XXXIX, XLII, XLV, XLVIII, LI and LIV).
During Aikman’s 12-year playing career, he set 45 Cowboys’ passing records, including the club’s career record for completions (2,898), passing yards (32,942), touchdowns (165) and completion percentage (61.3). While leading one of sports’ most famous franchises, the Cowboys won six NFC East titles (1992-96 and 1998) and advanced to four NFC Championship Games (1992-1995). Aikman is one of only four quarterbacks to guide his team to victory in three Super Bowls (XXVII, XXVIII and XXX).
In February of 2006, Aikman was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio and was inducted into the Hall in August of that year. He became just the sixth player in Cowboys history to enter those hallowed halls.
Prior to joining the Cowboys, Aikman passed for 5,298 yards and 41 touchdowns in two years at UCLA. During that span, the All-American led the Bruins to a 20-4 record. In 1999, he was inducted into the UCLA Sports Hall of Fame. He transferred to UCLA after two seasons at the University of Oklahoma (1984-85). Selected by the Cowboys with the first overall selection in the 1989 NFL Draft, he became the first rookie quarterback to start a season opener for Dallas since Staubach in 1969.
Born November 21, 1966, he was raised in Cerritos, California. At the age of 12, his family moved to Henryetta, Oklahoma where he went on to earn All-State honors at Henryetta High School. He resides in Dallas, Texas and has two daughters, Jordan and Ally.
