Former Dallas Cowboy Pro Bowler Gets Degree

I always liked La Roi Glover when he played defensive tackle for the Cowboys.  Too bad he got run off by Bill Parcells for the Tuna’s pet Jason Ferguson, who was absolutely a bust in Big D.

Glover is now in St. Louis.  He recently went back to school to earn his college degree in Public Adminstration.  As a six time Pro Bowler, he’s got a boatload of cash in the bank.

He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,  “Now that I have three children, it was important for me to show them … the importance of going back and getting it.”

Jason Witten of the Cowboys recently got his college degree from Tennessee.  It’s good to see players understand the importance of a degree and the message it sends to kids and fellow players.

Rick Gosselin’s Final Mock Draft

Newdawg blog readers know I’m a big time fan of Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. 

Goose is a tremendous writer and he talks to all the teams.  One day I had him on NBC 5 and he had spoken to five NFL GM’s that day.

He’s got the Cowboys taking a running back and a corner in the first round.   Click for the entire mock draft.
