Staubach To Receive Lamar Hunt Award For Professional Football

Roger Staubach will be honored at an awards gala in March



    Hall of Fame quarterback and two-time Super Bowl Champion Roger Staubach will add to his already impressive trophy case when he receives the Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football in March.

    The award honors the legacy of longtime Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Texans owner, and legendary proponent of the NFL, Lamar Hunt; it is awarded annually to an individual who has “helped shape the National Football League into the preeminent sports league in America.”

    The former Cowboys’ quarterback will receive the honor at the 42nd Annual NFL 101 Awards gala in Kansas City on March 3.

    “Roger Staubach certainly ranks as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the National Football League, but his impact on the game goes far beyond that,” said Clark Hunt, chairman of the Chiefs, per the Kansas City Star. “He has represented our league with class, integrity, leadership and excellence, and our family is delighted to have Roger as this year’s award recipient.”
