At halftime of this Sunday’s game against the Seahawks the Cowboys will be inducting three more players into their Ring of Honor at Cowboys Stadium. The three players are Drew Pearson, Charles Haley and Larry Allen. The last inductions into the Ring of Honor came in 2005 when Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin were inducted together. With the three new additions it brings the total number of players in the Ring of Honor to 18.  Then add in Coach Tom Landry and General Manager Tex Schramm.

Drew Pearson played for the Cowboys from 1973-83 and helped them win Super Bowl XII over the Broncos. He collected 489 receptions for 7,822 yards in his career, averaging 16 yards a catch and scored 48 touchdowns. Pearson was also voted into three Pro Bowls in 1974, ’76 and ’77 and was also named first team All-Pro in those same seasons. Pearson was forced to retire after the 1983 season when he was involved in a serious car accident in which he suffered internal injuries. Pearson, also known as Mr. Clutch for his big receptions caught the game winner in the 1975 playoffs against the Vikings that became known as the “Hail Mary”. He also caught two late fourth quarter touchdown passes from Danny White to win the game in the 1980 playoffs against the Falcons. 

Charles Haley came to the Cowboys right before the start of the 1992 season in a trade with the 49ers and played through 1996 for the Cowboys. Some say Haley was the last piece to the Cowboys puzzle as he helped them win their three Super Bowls in the early 90′s and become the team of the decade. Haley collected 34 sacks while playing for the Cowboys and also caused the fumble of Bills QB Jim Kelly in Super Bowl XXVII that led to Jimmie Jones scoring and the Cowboys taking their first lead in the game.

Larry Allen played in 176 games for the Cowboys from 1994 to 2005. He helped the Cowboys win Super Bowl XXX over the Steelers. He was voted to the Pro Bowl ten times while with the Cowboys and was a seven time All-Pro selection. Allen was an intimidating lineman at 6′ 3″ and 325 pounds. He also was regarded as one of the strongest, if not the strongest man in the NFL and has a recorded bench press of 692 pounds.

Congratulations to all three of the newest Cowboys Ring of Honor inductees. Their names will now hang with the other members of the Ring of Honor and will forever be part of Dallas Cowboys history.
