Former NMMI star Staubach inducted into NJCAA Hall of Fame

Former NMMI athlete Roger Staubach has made the NJCAA Hall of Fame.

A ceremony on Saturday recognizes the induction.

This happens in Athens, Tex. prior to NMMI’s game against Trinity Valley.

A press conference happens a hour before kickoff on the student union building ballroom.

NMMI Supt. Jerry Grizzle presents Staubach with the award, and then Staubach offers remarks.

Additionally, Staubach does the coin toss after walking with the NMMI game captain to the field.

During the 1960-61 school year, Staubach played football, basketball, and baseball for the Broncos.

He left NMMI for the Naval Academy the following year, ultimately touring Vietnam and then playing for the Dallas Cowboys.
