Varsity football meets former Dallas Cowboy

Varsity football meets former Dallas Cowboy

Before the homecoming football game against the Jacksonville Indians on October 9, the varsity football team was able to meet with former Dallas Cowboys football player Jay Novacek at Heritage Land Bank. Novacek talked with the team and signed autographs.

“He was a heck of a football player,” head football coach Mike Meador said, “Of course most of my players were not even born yet when he played.”

Novacek played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1990 to 1996. With them, he won three Super Bowls and was elected to the Pro Bowl five times.

“When you get to meet a professional football player like that, it’s a great experience,” senior center Jacob Moore said. “He gave us a really good talk about lessons we should know about football and how we should play.

Novacek spoke to the team about how to minimize mistakes and talked about some changes he made to improve as a football player. Perhaps using his advice, Lindale would go on to win against the Indians 35-28.

“This whole game that we play, the one you guys are playing now, is one on not making mistakes,” Novacek said, “You make a mistake and you give them another chance to beat you.”
