Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the founder of Papa John's Pizza John Schnatter delivered over 800 pizzas to roughly 2,000 construction workers at the new Cowboys Stadium Saturday. Joining Jones and Schnatter in delivering pizza and good will to the construction workers was Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick.
The thresome took pictures and signed autographs for the workers. Jones was even asked to do some of the dance moves he made famous in his Papa John's commercials last year but he declined because he didn't have "the right music."
"I hope it shows we are a team and the construction workers are part of the team," Jones said. "I know so many people I have visited with who have helped build this stadium over the last several years have just to be a part of the project will always be a part of them."
Papa John's will have at least four pizza stands in the new Cowboys Stadium. It will also be served in all the suites.
In addition, Schnatter also personally delivered pizzas to the kids participating in the Tashard Choice Youth Camp at Sam Houston High School earlier in the day. Schnatter served pizzas and also gave a financial donation to the Tashard Choice Foundation.
It was a full day for Scandrick as well. He worked the Choice camp before coming over to the stadium. Also working the camp were running backs Felix Jones and Marion Barber.
