Famous white cornerbacks in NFL history Jason Sehorn, formerly of the New York Giants, was the last well-known white cornerback. From 1996 through 2002, Sehorn was a member of the San Francisco Giants. He is also one of only two players to win the Lester B. Pearson Award more than once (other being Jim Leonhard). The other winner is Brandon Browner of the Seattle Seahawks.
Sehorn was born on January 4th, 1964 in Washington D.C. He was raised by his single mother after his father walked out on the family when Jason was just a baby. His mother worked several jobs to support her three children. She was determined that her sons would not go through the same struggles she did during her childhood.
In 1987, at the age of 20, he started working with the New York Giants as a free agent defensive back. Two years later, he became a full-time starter and four years later, he was named the team's most valuable player. In 2001, he led the Giants' defense to a franchise record setting number of interceptions with 17 passes defended. That same year, he was selected for the Pro Bowl after he had 9 interceptions and 22 pass defenses in 2000.

Complex published a list of the Top 10 Hispanic NFL players on the day Tony Romo returned to the Dallas Cowboys. Romo was chosen because his father is Mexican-American and his grandparents live in Texas. Arian Foster of the Texans, whose mother is Mexican-American, is also on the list. So are wide receivers Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Dez Bryant (Dallas Cowboys).
While most Hispanics have Spanish as their first language, many Mexican Americans speak English instead. The term "Chicano" was originally used to describe students at California State University, Long Beach who focused on academic excellence while protesting discrimination against Mexicans and Mexican Americans. The phrase has since become associated with the political movement known as Chicano nationalism. Today, "Chicano" can refer to anyone who identifies with the culture and people of Mexico or Mexican Americans.
Romo grew up in El Paso, Texas, where he played football for two years at Eastern New Mexico University before being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. He's now one win away from reaching the playoffs for the first time in six seasons.
