9. Roger Staubach
Roger Staubach might be the guy most responsible for making the Dallas Cowboys “America’s Team.” Nicknamed “Captain America” himself, Staubach won the Heisman Trophy at the U.S. Naval Academy, served a tour of duty in Vietnam, and then led the Cowboys to five Super Bowl appearances — including four as the starter — in his 11-year career. But Staubach might’ve been best known for his late game heroics, leading the Cowboys to 23 game-winning drives (15 comebacks) in the fourth quarter during his career, with 17 of those in the final two minutes or in overtime. The six-time Pro Bowl selection was named to the NFL’s 1970s All-Decade Team. Staubach is also one of four players in the history of the NFL to win both the Heisman Trophy and the Super Bowl MVP award.
