    Passing the Torch
    A Legend steps into the role of a Mentor​

    The National Football League is all about the history, the glory, the legends and the Hall of Famers. For years young kids have looked up to their idols and heroes, the men who got them to enjoy and play the great game of football. This has been no different in the Dallas community throughout the years, but this offseason something truly special happened.

    After a hyped up Senior season, HB Jyhe Davis looked poised to go in the first round of the draft. Day 1 of the Draft came and passed, and Davis still was not selected. Heartbroken, Jyhe continued to put a smile on his face. As he sat in his living room with his family, Davis received a phone call, but it was not the call he was expecting. Instead of it being an NFL team drafting him, the young Halfback received a phone call from an NFL legend. Emmitt Smith, the NFL's all time leading rusher, talked to Jyhe and gave him a great sense of confidence and positivity.

    Well, after the call the middle of the second round passes...still Davis was not selected. Finally, that ring came, and it was none other than Owner Jerry Jones and Coach Bobby Green of the Dallas Cowboys. Life comes full circle sometimes, and Davis was ecstatic to become a member of the Cowboys organization.

    After talking to all his family, Jyhe's next move was to seek the guidance and direction from one of the greatest Halfbacks of all time. Davis and Smith have been in constant communication throughout this summer leading up to training camp. Before his first preseason action, Davis was surprised that Emmitt showed up for the game. I mean it was just a preseason game. But what he did not know is Emmitt had contacted the Cowboys organization, and requested them to give Davis the number 22. A sacred number in the history of the Dallas Cowboys.

    While Davis may never be Emmitt Smith, at least he has him in his corner.

    Bo's agent ... "Bo are you interested in playing football because I have a team interested"
    Bo ... "If its Tampa Bay then you can tell them to go SHOVE it!"

    That 30 for 30 was great to watch ... sad that he was done at the age of 28
