Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones was inducted as a charter member of the National Football Foundation’s Leadership Hall of Fame on Thursday night at the Omni Dallas Hotel.

“To be honored for being somebody who has made a difference, that is very important to him,” Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said. “When it comes to the game, when it comes to football, those things are right at the top. It means a lot to him and it means a lot to our family that he gets the recognition he so deserves.”

The NFF announced the creation of the NFF Leadership Hall of Fame in May. The platform provides the organization with a vehicle for recognizing influential individuals who have ascended to the highest levels of success and exhibited leadership qualities that transcend ordinary enterprises.

“It is not about me,” Jerry Jones said. “It’s about doing something and recognizing what football can mean to young people. One of the things the National Football Foundation is about is you can learn a lot lessons that help you do things other than play football.”
