GCL at White House

Congrats to Purcell High School's Roger Staubach for receiving the Congressional Medal of Freedom today at the White House. The State of Ohio, the City of Cincinnati and Greater Catholic League (fka Greater Cincinnati League) are well represented in the person of Roger Staubach.

He is a great person. People forget he started his NFL career late (at like 27 or 28) bc he was tied up with his service commitment. He also coined the term “Hail Mary.”

Kind of like our version of being knighted. A bit political. A bit popular.


Staubach not an in the news kind of person. What's he do these days? What reasons were given for the award? Recent things? Life-long things? Past things? I wasn't much of a Cowboys fan but he was always fun to watch.

On July 11, 2008, The Staubach Company was sold to Jones Lang LaSalle for $613 million.[28] Staubach and his children's trust would gross more than $100 million from the sale by 2013. The sale provided an initial payment of $9.27 per Staubach share with additional payments due during the ensuing five years for a total of approximately $29/share. Staubach took half of his first payment in Jones Lang LaSalle stock which was then trading at approximately $59.50/share. Staubach currently serves as executive chairman of Jones Lang LaSalle.

In addition to this position, I imagine he is enjoying (the good) life.

*The Staubach Company - real estate.

$600 million isn't what it used to be. One bad cold, and you're down to $599, 999,000

IIRC, Staubach is the wealthiest person to ever play in the NFL (saw it in a click-bait article a few years ago). As EagleGuy pointed out, Staubach did very well in real estate.

Incidentally, fellow Ohio native and former NFLer Alan Page (Canton Central Catholic '63) was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Page's post-NFL days consisted of a career in law that saw him serve as Minnesota Assistant Attorney General and as a Minnesota Supreme Court Justice.
