It was a given that Everson Walls, who gave a kidney to prolong Ron Springs' life, would speak at Springs' funeral. But Roger Staubach said he also will speak Thursday.
"I had the '79 season with Ron," Staubach said Monday. "He had some great games. He was a heck of an athlete, a really good player. He played behind Tony [Dorsett], and Tony got hurt at the end of the year, and we beat the Redskins [35-34 after being down 34-14], and he and Preston Pearson had great games. On that last touchdown, I remember jumping into his arms. Everybody was amazed. I never did that before.
