One of my favorite players from the 2000's Cowboys teams is coming to Wichita Falls next month.

Let's be honest with each other Cowboys fans. After the dynasty in the 90's, the Dallas Cowboys did not have the best of seasons going into the new decade. Things turned around in 2003 for me, when the Cowboys hired Bill Parcells and in that first year Dallas had one of the best defenses in the NFL.

A key factor into those Cowboys defenses was linebacker Dat Nguyen, in my opinion, a very underrated player in the NFL. Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher were getting the headlines for the NFL during this time. In my opinion, Dat was three. I loved this guy and I can't believe he will be in Wichita Falls on August 21.
