Roger Staubach retired from the Dallas Cowboys after the 1979 season when he was 39 years old.
Ex-NFL QB Roger Staubach is 75 years old (birthdate: February 5, 1942).
Roger Staubach played for the US Naval academy- then years later- went pro- he had to fulfill a mandatory four-year tour as a commissioned officer in the Navy- quite apart from military requirements, this reason alone is why few (Major Leaguers or NFL types) came out of the Service academies. Staubach is the only one I can think of. I do not know if the Army"s Davis and Blanchard ever went pro- they were, in Gold and Black- known as the Touchdown Twins.
The Heisman Trophy winner from the Naval Academy played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1969 to 1979.
