One was sixth-grade teacher Ruth Ewing who offered encouragement during a particularly stressful time growing up in Hammond, Ind.
The other was Dr. Ira Eshleman, a Presbyterian pastor who encouraged Cross to accept Jesus Christ as his lord and savior during a challenging time as a player with the Los Angeles Rams in the mid-1960s.
