Cowboys dive into charity work
More than 20 rookies, including first-round pick Morris Claiborne, served meals for more than 200 less fortunate men and women at The Salvation Army Carr P. Collins Social Service Center on Wednesday as part of National Salvation Army Week.
“Just helping people,” fourth-round pick Kyle Wilber said. “We’re in position right now to help people out and we want to be active in the community, show our faces that we’re just not on the TV screen playing football, but we have a personal life.”
This is the first time the Cowboys have kicked off their Rookie Club in the offseason. In addition to workouts and on-field teaching sessions, the rookies will have life skills classes during the offseason to help get them ready for life in the NFL. The draft picks will head to the Rookie Symposium in June.
“It’s a great feeling having people look up to you,” guard Ronald Leary said. “Just seeing the smiles on their faces, they’re grateful and we’re grateful for them.”
