HALL OF FAMER ROGER STAUBACH HEADLINES GRANBURY LEADERSHIP EVENT
April 20, 2017
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach
headlined a leadership event at Granbury High School on April 20, 2017. The
program was made possible by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Extreme
Students from GHS teams and organizations heard the
Hall of Fame quarterback speak in the new Career and Technical Education Center
lecture hall. Granbury ISD middle and
elementary schools – and others from across the nation – participated via Internet
Through the Hall of Fame’s youth education program,
the former quarterback spoke about his education and career as well as his
views on teamwork, work ethics, and other important character attributes. He also referenced his family and faith as
important factors in his life.
Prior to his visit, the students completed a lesson
centered on the Hall of Fame values of commitment, integrity, courage, respect,
and excellence. They each researched Staubach’s career and wrote a short
biography before developing questions to pose to him about his achievements on
and off the football field and how his character helped him achieve
success. Following the program, each
participant explored how Staubach’s life and commitment to values could inspire
them to create a personal mission statement.
Staubach attended the United States Naval Academy
and then played in the National Football League from 1969-1979. His leadership was during a successful decade
for the team, which made it to the Super Bowl five times and won two NFL titles
during those years. According to the Hall of Fame, Staubach had 22,700 passing
yards, 153 touchdown passes, 2,264 rushing yards, and 20 rushing touchdowns. He was inducted in the hall in 1985.
