Exclusive Details

The son of Dallas Cowboys football legend Don Meredith is getting behind the lens to direct a movie about the Army-Navy football game just days after the assassination of JFK.

Michael Meredith tells us the project — “The President’s Team” — will center around the 1963 Naval team and the brotherhood formed between the men on the squad. Roger Staubach, who went on to QB the Cowboys after Don, is a centerpiece of the film.

A quick history refresher — Kennedy was assassinated just days before the annual Army-Navy game that year, and was supposed to do the ceremonial coin toss. Many questioned if the game would still be played … Jackie Kennedy ultimately gave the go-ahead. 

Meredith tells TMZ Sports just how tight the bond between the men on the Navy team that year was … and how they managed to snag an F-14 to see Staubach’s first Super Bowl appearance.
