“I knew nothing about him. Why would I? UFA? From a directional school in Illinois? I mean, who cares?”
Tony Romo and I met in the Cowboys Locker Room in April ‘03, he was an undrafted free agent QB…from….who knew. I was looking to talk to him about playing golf. I had heard he was a good golfer, and I had a game a few days later for him to play a couple of holes. Luckily, he said yes. I had no inkling that he was actually going to be a good football player – much less make the Cowboys Roster. I knew nothing about him. Why would I? UFA? From a directional school in Illinois? I mean, who cares?
He was cool, kind, and fun to hang out with and damn – he could hit a friggin’ golf ball. Our relationship progressed and so did he. In all honesty, that worked out great for ME too! I was friends with the hottest QB in football? Nice.
This story is one that I knew a lot about – but I was certain there were details that everyone would want to hear. I was right – ‘Romo to Witten – Touchdown’ was fun for my team to put together and I think you’re going to like it. Witten chimes in as do some other notable Cowboys teammates.
