As for A Cowboy Life Podcasts that you will get to listen to soon:
Jeff Heath (#38), hit a guy so hard on special teams one day that he almost killed him…what does it feel like to to watch a man you hit lay motionless on the ground for 30 minutes and not move? How do you keep playing?
James Whalen (former TE), got Zero D-1 offers for college – but ended up at a Major University catching 90 balls in a year – then got drafted and cut in the NFL…then Jerry Jones called….and Bill Parcells came…….the good, the bad, the Bill.La’El Collins (#70), La’el had purchased plane tickets for he and his family to be at the 2015 draft in Chicago. He was going to be a top 15 pick and sign a contract worth approximately $12Million dollars shortly there after. Then the Louisiana police were notified that a pregnant women that Collins had dates, was shot and killed. La’el was not “a person of interest”, but he was someone who the police “wanted to talk to”. He fell out of the draft. He didn’t shoot her. How do you recover your life when it is seemingly changed forever – through no fault of your own?
Gil Brandt – (Chief Talent Scout from Day 1 with the Cowboys), in 1960 Mr. Brandt was hired by Tex Schramm to work with he and Tom Landry, they were the triumvirate that lead the Cowboys to becoming America’s Team.
