ROGER STAUBACH: A Football Life premieres Friday, December 5th at 10pm/ET on NFL Network.
In the galaxy of stars that played for the Dallas Cowboys, Roger Staubach still shines the brightest. He has an aura that has followed him from his time at the Naval Academy, to his military service in Vietnam, and ultimately to Dallas, where he became the quarterback of America’s Team. The last minute NFL touchdown pass, once called the “alley oop,” was changed to the “Hail Mary,” after Staubach threw a game-winning touchdown to Drew Pearson in the 1975 playoffs.
He led the Cowboys to late game victories so often and with such drama that he earned the nickname “Captain Comeback.” He refused to lose, once racing against teammate and former Olympic sprinter Bob Hayes again and again until he finally won. Roger Staubach: A Football Life takes a revealing look at the Heisman winner, Super Bowl MVP, Hall of Famer, and still to this day, Captain America.
“Roger Staubach: A Football Life” is produced by Chris Barlow and Bennett Viseltear.
