Staubach Honored With ’63 Cotton Bowl Team on 21 October

Posted: 10/24/2023

Roger Staubach was honored during the 21 October Navy-Air Force game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. His #12 was placed on the turf at the 12-yard line, on the opposite ends of Joe Bellino’s #27 that was placed on the turf in 2019. Bellino (1960) and Staubach (1963) are Navy’s only two Heisman Trophy winners.

“I don’t know if any season in my life was as good as 1963,” said Staubach, who won two Super Bowls, played in four and earned a Super Bowl MVP honor during his 11 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. “Every time we get together like this, it’s more special.”
