Don't know what it was all about, but as the Cowboys began their later drills, Roy Williams went over to the north end zone stands and brought out a young fan. The young boy accompanied Williams onto the field, and he's standing back there watching the Cowboys work out right now.
"It’s a thing I started in Detroit – water boy for Roy. It can be a girl, though. It doesn’t matter," Williams said after practice. "It’s just a chance to give a kid an opportunity to get close to the players. He’ll probably remember that for the rest of his life. It’s something I started. I want other guys (players) to see that we have open practices, so they can do the same thing. It’s cool, man. I’d do just anything for this kids, doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl."
It was a pretty cool little deal. Williams hung out with him back there when he wasn't in a particular drill. By the way, Williams wore #11 in the morning practice and was back in #4 this afternoon.
The young fan, by the way, was 8-year-old David Garcia of San Antonio. Apparently, this is something Williams started up in Detroit, bringing a lucky young fan onto the field. Roy was hospitable, talking to and signing plenty of autographs for fans.
