Waco, TX — More than 100 kids from West attended a football clinic today on Baylor’s campus to get some good pointers, but more importantly, to take a break from the recent tragedy and meet a local cowboy- a Dallas Cowboy that is.
The professional football team wanted to do something special for the community shortly after the fertilizer blast in April.
Today, Baylor star and recent third-round pick for the Cowboys, Terrance Williams was on hand giving autographs.
Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders also gave smiles, as well as Rowdy the Mascot.
Parents said the gesture was a great way for kids to have fun and forget about the past couple of months.
“It just takes your mind off the whole ordeal and gives a little peace to the kids," said Bobby Teat. "There’s no more happiness in this world than to see your kids happy."
The free camp is just one example of local professional teams helping out West.
On Saturday, the Dallas Mavericks held a camp as well.
