Best Answer

Naval Academy graduate and Vietnam Veteran Roger Staubach was drafted by the NFL in 1964 (Round 10 / Pick 129), but due to his Navy commitment, wasn't able to begin playing until the 1969 season. He played for the Dallas Cowboys for 11 seasons, from 1969 - 1979, in which he led the Cowboys to 2 Super Bowl victories, and earning himself Super Bowl MVP honors for Super Bowl VI.

He was the first of only 4 players to win both the Heisman Trophy and subsequently earn Super Bowl MVP recognition. He is also the last player from a military academy to win the Heisman.
