Jason Witten was a third round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2003. Witten is known to be one of the toughest players in the league. He has only missed one game in his NFL career because he has played through many injuries.

Witten holds the record for most receptions in Dallas Cowboys franchise history. He even is 10th on the all time receptions list for the NFL. Witten currently lives in Westlake, Texas near Dallas. Jason is a Christian and he appeared in a video on “I Am Second” where he talks about his faith. Jason Witten launched the SCORE foundation to provide support and assistance for families and individuals affected by domestic violence. Witten also speaks on volunteering and is a big volunteer himself. Jason Witten has become one of the Dallas Cowboys’ best and most reliable players. Every time they need a big play, Jason is the one they go to. Witten is one of Romo’s favorite targets on an important down. It will be a sad day when Witten decides to retire but he will always be remembered by Cowboy fans.
Throughout the years, the Dallas Cowboys have had success in drafting players from smaller schools and developing them into great talents. Huge names like Rayfield Wright and Ed “too tall” Jones were unlikely talents that developed into Hall of Fame players. Tony Romo, the starting quarterback currently for the Cowboys was even a player that was looked over by every team. Romo played football at Eastern Illinois and he went undrafted in the NFL. He signed with the Dallas Cowboys and never even threw a pass until his fourth season in the league. Though the Cowboys have had success picking these small school players, they have not been able to come up with these talents in recent years. The Cowboys could be thinking about drafting quarterback Carson Wentz from North Dakota State. He is considered one of the best, if not the best, quarterback in the 2016 draft class. While coming from a smaller, less heard of school, Wentz has already accomplished many things in his college career. Jason Garrett says, “he believes in competition and when you have guys that play people at a high level, then that gives you a high evaluation of the player.” Although this is true, there are players in the league that come from all different levels.
Jerry Jones is a well know name whether you are a Dallas Cowboys fan, a sports fan, or even just a business man. He is the owner of the Dallas Cowboys.Jerry bought the Cowboys in 1989. Jerry fired coach Tom Landry, the only coach the Cowboys had ever had, and he soon became hated by many people from that day on. Some people even dislike him because he wants to be the “face of the team” instead of one of the coaches or players. Jerry also tries to be involved in every move that the Cowboys make, even though some people believe that should be left up to the coaches. Others complain about the lack of success the Cowboys have had the last few years. No matter what someone will always be unhappy with Jerry. However, the Cowboys are his team. His son will most likely inherit the team when he steps down. Jerry has recently been involved with Blue Star Sports which is a youth sports software company. This organization offers advanced technologies that can advance youth sports organizations’ operations and make the experiences better for athletes and parents. The software includes a custom website, registration and payment solutions for youth sports leagues, clubs, and associations.
