Cowboys Exes to Play for a Good Cause

IRVING -- Want to see ex-Cowboys greats such as Roger Staubach and Chad Hennings take on real heroes for a worthy cause? Get all the details here! ... Plus everything else you need to know from inside Valley Ranch!



You know the Dallas Cowboys as "America's Team," but the real America's team will challenge the pro version in flag football.

On Thursday, May 21 at 6:00 p.m. at Jesuit College Preparatory in Dallas, the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team will take on Dallas Cowboys alumni, including Roger Staubach and Chad Hennings, in “Game of Honor - Tribute-to-Heroes.” Additionally, over 40 other NFL and Cowboys alumni are extended to be there.

"It's to recognize the sacrifices that a lot of our veterans have given of their time and talent and treasure of themselves to support and defend our Constitution," Hennings tells us. "But it's also realize that to support these guys that there's life after injury. If they've had an amputation or they're wearing a prosthetic limb that they're actually going out and doing constructive things with their lives. And that's where we need to honor them and hold them up and encourage them to just acknowledge them for the sacrifice that they made for each and every one of us."

There is no better way to kickoff Memorial Day Weekend than with a game featuring all of our heroes. A $10 donation is requested for adult admission, while students and children are free.

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team consists military members who lost a limb in Iraq or Afghanistan. The team stands at 10-0 versus NFL Alumni with their last victory being in front of 10,000 fans during Super Bowl XXIX weekend in Phoenix.

Hennings says it's important to "always trying to spread the word about what the significance is of what our veterans have done and keep that in the forefront of people's minds ... not to forget."
