Reliving the improbable 'Hail Mary' pass

It only took 47 years plus, but Managing Editor Lew K. Cohn finally got to meet Roger Staubach at the 15th Annual Hill Country 100 Club Awards Banquet in Burnet on Jan. 18 and hear the story of the 'Hail Mary' pass from the legend himself.

The year was 1975 and I was in kindergarten. My favorite NFL football team was the Dallas Cowboys and my favorite player, without a doubt, was the quarterback, No. 12, future Hall of Famer Roger Staubach. My family were staunch Cowboys supporters and had been since the team was first formed as an expansion team in 1960. Blankets, pillowcases, toboggan hats, even pajamas — if it was branded with the “star,” I most likely got it from my parents in the 1970s.

An event would happen that year that would have a lasting impact on my friends and me as Cowboy fans. Of course, I am talking about the famous “Hail Mary” pass from Staubach to Drew Pearson to win the NFC Divsional playoffs.


Win a fire engine ride-along in HSB parade


Imagine yourself waving from a shiny new Horseshoe Bay Fire Rescue fire engine in the city's 4th of July parade. Then, quick buy a ticket in the drawing to benefit the Hill Country 100 Club.

Today, Thursday, June 29, is the last day to purchase a ticket for a ride-along on one of the new Horseshoe Bay fire engines in the city's 4th of July parade.

For the donation of $5 each or $20 for five tickets, you not only get a chance to join the parade in a Horseshoe Bay Fire Rescue truck, you support the Hill Country 100 Club.

A winning ticket is good for space for two adults or an adult and a child, four years or older, with a booster seat and an adult qualified to sign the liability waiver for the ride.


Llano County Commissioners honor first responders

Editor's Note: There was incorrect information published about the Hill Country 100 Club in 'Commissioners honor responders' story, published in the Tuesday, June 13 edition of The Highlander. Membership is not limited to 100 people and yearly memberships have several levels of sponsorship available for businesses and individuals. The scholarship information was also incorrect. The corrected story follows.
