from and this man was a real good one back in the days of the Cowboys-Redskins battles….

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Robert Newhouse died Tuesday at the age of 64, a victim of heart disease.

Newhouse is well-remembered for his powerful thighs and his halfback pass thrown for a touchdown to Golden Richards in Super Bowl XII. He is remembered by those who knew him best as “kind and caring.”

“House was a great football player,” NFL Hall-of-Famer and former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach told FOX4 on Tuesday. “Off the field, he was a great man, kind and caring, solid as a rock”

Newhouse suffered a stroke in 2010 and had been at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., working to recover. He passed there surrounded by his family.
