About Roger Staubach

Roger Thomas Staubach (born February 5, 1942) is a businessman, Heisman Trophy winner and Hall of Fame former quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys from 1969 until 1979. Staubach was instrumental in developing the Cowboys into one of the best teams of the 1970s and led the team to nine of the Cowboys' record-setting twenty consecutive winning seasons. Staubach led the Cowboys to their first Super Bowl victory and as a result he was named MVP in Super Bowl VI. Staubach was described by long-time Cowboys head coach Tom Landry as 'possibly the best combination of a passer, an athlete and a leader to ever play in the NFL.' Staubach first achieved national attention when he was named the starting quarterback of the Navy football team in 1962. He was hailed by Navy coach Wayne Hardin as 'the greatest quarterback Navy ever had.' He helmed the team for three seasons, leading the Midshipmen to two victories in the ArmyNavy Game and an appearance in the 1964 Cotton Bowl Classic.
