Pugh, 6-6 and 250 lbs., was only 20 years old when the Cowboys drafted him in December 1964 after his senior season at Elizabeth City State in the Carolina Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
Played for the Cowboys from 1964 till 1978


Eddie LeBaron
1930 - 2015
Died April 1, 2015 at the age of 85
It was learned Wednesday that Eddie LeBaron, all 5 foot 7 inches of him, passed away. Despite his small size, LeBaron had a huge heart and desire to succeed, not only on the football field and eventually running his own team, but defending our nation in war time. Mr. LeBaron passed away from natural causes at the age of 85.

To Dallas Cowboys fans, LeBaron is the answer to a great trivia question: “who was the first starting qb in team history?” It was number 14, who provided a stabilizing influence to his eventual replacement named Don Meredith. All in all, Eddie played in 3 Pro Bowls and had over 13,000 passing yards with two teams, yet earned the respect of teammates and opponents alike.



REMEMBERING A TRUE GENTLEMAN: BUCK BUCHANAN
FORMER COWBOYS EQUIPMENT MANAGER


by Kristi Scales, DallasCowboys.com           July 6, 2015


The Cowboys Family received sad news over the holiday weekend. Long-time equipment manager Buck Buchanan passed away on the 4th of July. He spent 25 seasons with the Cowboys (1973-1998) and his tenure included the dynastic Super Bowl winning teams of the 70’s and the 90’s. His legacy with the franchise continues to this day because his son, Bucky, followed in his father’s footsteps as a Cowboys equipment manager.

Within the Cowboys organization we proudly use the term “family”. It’s not a word we throw around lightly. Buck was one of the first members in the organization that made me feel like family.

I had the good fortune of being around Buck for seven years (1991-1998). He treated me, a young female reporter just learning the ropes, like a respected professional. He treated me the same as the long-time veteran male reporters. Okay, to be honest, I think he actually treated me better than the guys because he was a true gentleman and took a paternalistic interest in protecting a young pup.

If an editor restricted me to one word to describe Buck, that’s the word I would choose: GENTLEMAN. And if two words were the limit, the other would be RESPECTED. Everyone not only loved Buck, they respected him.

He saw it all in his 25 seasons. He worked with many of the greatest players and coaches in the history of the game. Not just the history of the Cowboys, but the history of the NFL!!!! And they respected him. From Landry & Staubach, Randy White & Tony Dorsett, to the Super Bowl winning teams of the 90’s with the Triplets. Wow, Buck was there for the highest of highs as well as the lowest of lows (1-15 season of 1989, firing of Landry, etc.).

Buck will ALWAYS be a cherished member of the Cowboys Family. It was our good fortune to know him and use him as an example of the right way to treat each other.



Mike Gaechter, key defensive back of ’60s Dallas Cowboys’
dies at 75 in Dallas, August 17, 2015



Mike Gaechter, a former Cowboys player during the early years of the franchise, died Monday of heart failure at his home in Dallas.

He was 75.

Gaechter is survived by his wife, Cheri, his daughter, Katherine Rea, and three brothers — Paul Anthony, William and Mark. A funeral mass at St. Ann Catholic Parish in Coppell and services at Restland Funeral Home are pending.

A defensive back, Gaechter appeared in 108 games during an NFL career that spanned eight seasons from 1962 to 1969. His name remains etched in the team’s record books after he ran back an interception 100 yards for a touchdown in a 1962 victory over Philadelphia that also featured a 101-yard kickoff return by Dallas’ Amos Marsh. By the time he walked away from football, he had picked off 21 passes.

“He was a very good athlete,” said Gaechter’s former teammate and friend, Dave Manders. “He was a real tough, hard-nosed player. He never minded putting in his head in there.”



Tony Liscio, Guard and Tackle from the ’60s Dallas Cowboys’
dies from ALS at 76, June 19, 2017



The Dallas Cowboys recently lost a member of its football family.

Tony Liscio, a former offensive lineman for the club, passed away Sunday morning after suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Selected in the third round of the 1963 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, Liscio ultimately landed with the Cowboys and is best known for protecting Cowboy's legends and Hall of Fame quarterbacks Don Meredith and Roger Staubach as both a guard and a tackle.

Despite battling a myriad of injures during his NFL tenure, Liscio was able to mount an impressive career that included helping the Cowboys reach both Super Bowl V and Super Bowl VI - with the latter ending in victory after coach legend Tom Landry asked him to come out of retirement to help the team.
