Walls: a life-saving donation
By the time Springs left the Cowboys in 1985, their wives already were good friends. Eventually, so were their kids. Everyone gets along so well that they’ve taken family vacations together, like the time all eight piled into one Land Cruiser and drove from Dallas to Orlando through a rainstorm so blinding they missed their destination.
Springs is the godfather of Walls’ oldest daughter and Walls received the same honor for Springs’ youngest. And, living up to the old saying that “your family is my family,” Springs recently spoke at the funeral of Walls’ father-in-law.
