    The Dallas Cowboys say The Star, the team's new headquarters in Frisco, is on track for completion in time for its opening in August.

    "This time next year we'll be drafting right here at The Star," Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones said in a Wednesday news conference.

    The new Cowboys practice facility will have an interactive Ring of Honor Walk, recognizing every player in the Ring of Honor.

    The 21 monuments will represent the 21 members of the Ring of Honor, with No. 12 Roger Staubach and No. 88 Drew Pearson placed 50 yards apart in honor of the legendary Hail Mary Pass.

    Staubach and Pearson were on hand for the announcement.

    "I had a chance to tour the facility with Stephen a few weeks ago, and it's magnificent," said Staubach.

    Pearson thanked the Jones family for honoring Cowboys legends of the past with the new Ring of Honor.

    "To have that extended here to the Star in Frisco is amazing," said Pearson. "No one in the NFL is doing it like the Dallas Cowboys, right? We set the standard, we did it back in the day, and the best thing about it is we're continuing to set the standard."

    Pearson said his grandson, who attends Frisco Lone Star High School will play at the same facility.

    The pair, wearing cleats with their suits, planted their feet in concrete on Wednesday.
