CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - NFL legend Roger Staubach will be back in his hometown Friday as part of a special program called "Hometown Hall of Famers."

Staubach is a 1960 alum of Purcell High School and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback.

He will be recognized by representatives of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (PFHOF), Allstate Insurance and the Purcell Marian community during a special ceremony at Purcell Marian.

Staubach is a two-time Super Bowl champion and was named MVP of Super Bowl VI. He was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and led the NFL in passing four times. Staubach was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.

Two of Staubach's former high school teammates and Cincinnati residents, Jerry Momper and Roger Thesing, will present the historic plaque which will remain on permanent display at Purcell Marian High School.  An HD billboard on I-71 at Wm. Howard Taft will run throughout the day to congratulate Staubach on his recognition, and to thank him for his personal selection of the school as the site of the ceremony.
