Super Bowl initiative after key Cowboys play

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Organizers of the 2011 Super Bowl are naming a key initiative after a key play the Dallas Cowboys used to win championships in the 1990s.

Former President George W. Bush was among dozens of dignitaries for Monday's announcement of a community service project called Service Learning Adventures in North Texas, or "SLANT 45."

Starting early next year, the initiative will strive to involve more than 20,000 students in third through grades in an attempt to log at least 45,000 combined hours of community service.

Quarterback Troy Aikman, running back Emmitt Smith and fullback Daryl Johnston attended the announcement. They were key parts of the running play "Slant 45" that helped the Cowboys win three Super Bowls in four seasons.
