Carr, who says he doesn’t recall being nervous that night at the Omni Hotel near the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch practice facility, wanted to be a Dallas Cowboy so bad that he wasn’t concerned about the other teams that were interested.
“For him, it was always the Dallas Cowboys,” said Robinson, an assistant football coach at Northern Colorado. “It was always Dallas, Dallas, Dallas. He loved that star.”
He loved it from the time he was six years old and his parents bought him a Troy Aikman uniform complete with a plastic Cowboys helmet. And he loved it when he pulled up to the Kansas City airport on March 13 and saw Jones’ private jet waiting to scoop him up.
