After a long wait, Cowboys legend Drew Pearson was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2021. The three-time Pro Bowler and First-Team All-Pro wide receiver will be enshrined in August with Cowboys Hall of Famer Roger Staubach being his presenter.
Staubach was a large part of the reveal for Pearson, collaborating with team owner Jerry Jones to trick Pearson into coming to The Star, where David Baker was waiting.
The pair of Staubach and Pearson was known for many heroics during their time together in the 1970s, including the first “Hail Mary” in 1975 against the Vikings in the playoffs. In 1978, the Cowboys won Super Bowl XII, led by the duo and legendary head coach Tom Landry.
On August 8, Staubach will present Pearson as part of the Class of 2021 Enshrinement, welcoming him to the Hall of Fame. The Cowboys will also be playing in the Hall of Fame game that weekend against the Steelers.
