Man who designed the Dallas Cowboys' logo dies

DALLAS (AP) - The man credited with designing the famed blue star logo of the Dallas Cowboys has died.

The Cowboys say Jack Eskridge died Monday at a Valley Falls, Kan., hospital. The funeral for the 89-year-old former Cowboys equipment manager is scheduled for Saturday morning at Carson-Speaks Chapel in Independence, Mo.

According to the team website, Eskridge was 1 of coach Tom Landry's first hires in 1959, the year before the Cowboys' debut season. It was he who designed the white-bordered blue star used after the Cowboys began with a white star.

Eskridge remained with the Cowboys until 1973.
