bakeBake Turner: From playing football to playing guitar

Robert “Bake” Turner, an Alpine native, went from small town living to big city lights…and back again.

Bake earned a football scholarship with Texas Tech University, where he played halfback and defensive back. He was drafted by the Baltimore Colts in 1962, then traded to the New York Jets one year later, becoming one of the leading receivers in the then American Football League. During his seven years with the Jets, Bake was named to the All Pro team and earned his ring when the Jets won Super Bowl III in 1969.

Bake now lives in his home city of Alpine, where he performs locally, when not making wine or playing golf.
