A new star in the Dallas Cowboys' Ring of Honor Walk celebrates one of the team's greatest legends.
The team dedicated a spot at The Star in Frisco to Gil Brandt, the former Vice President of Player Personnel played a major role in building the team we know today.
Cowboys officials unveiled the honor Wednesday after the team’s annual pre-draft news conference.
Brandt helped develop new ways to scout and evaluate prospective players before the draft. The entire league adopted many of his ideas in the years to come.
In all -- Brandt drafted 15 of 19 players in the Cowboys’ Ring of Honor.
"I don't know how one person can be so fortunate,” Brandt said. “Our team was terrible to start with. We were 11 and 1, we had a new draft, from that season we went to 20 consecutive playoffs. An all-time record,” Brandt said.
The 86-year-old honoree tweeted pictures of the new star Wednesday afternoon, saying his star is bigger than any star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
