Internationally known artist Bob Hogan created a bronze sculpture of Dallas Cowboys Coach Tom Landry and Cowboys Quarterback Roger Staubach.
Tom and Karen McCraken hosted the unveiling of the sculpture called "The Winning Play." It depicts Coach Landry giving a play to Staubach.
The 60 pound sculpture captured the final moments before a noon Dallas Cowboys game which ends in victory. The time on Coach Landry's watch read 3:05.
Staubach, Alicia Landry, family and friends were all on hand at the event Monday night in Highland Park.
"I think it's magnificent, I just love it and I'm glad Roger and Tommy are in it together. They were such a good team together. Tommy had such admiration for Roger," said Alicia Landry.
"He was a great human being, a great person and a heck of a coach. I'm just lucky to be part of it for the years I was here as a Cowboy," said Roger Staubach.
The Landry family will get one sculpture and Roger Staubach will get the other.
Eighteen quarter life size sculptures could be made from the original mold and perhaps one day a 9-foot-tall version of "The Winning Play" might be cast.
Right now, Bob Hogan is working on a larger than life size sculpture of "The 12th Man" for the remodeled Texas A&M stadium.
