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.
After his football career, Bake turned to his first love, music. One of the highlights of his career was his recording of “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone?” with Kapp Records (an arm of MCA Records). The song was later recorded by Charlie Pride and reached #1 on the country charts.
Bake now lives in his home city of Alpine, where he performs locally, when not making wine or playing golf.
