Louisiana Youth Athletes Get Surprise Message from Tony Romo
Former Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo sent some Benton, LA youth football players a surprise message of encouragement!
Who is Tony Romo?
Tony Romo is a former NFL player who played 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. If you're not a football fan, you probably remember hearing about his celebrity romances with Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood. These days, Romo is a family man and the lead NFL analyst for CBS Sports.
What's the message that Tony Romo sent to a Benton, LA youth football team all about?
Clearly, someone on the Benton Tigers 9 and 10-year-old youth football team has a connection to Romo, because not only did he call out team members by name, he even knew their positions. He called the team's coaches out by name, too! Word is that Benton assistant coach Harlan Hughes was behind the surprise. Check it out!
Isn't that awesome? I love that Tony took time out to record this special message of encouragement. Go Cowboys and go Benton Tigers, indeed!
