Director's Chair

Compassion, Support and Focus

I must admit, this has been an emotionally draining week for the entire Dallas Cowboys Football Club.

With our recent tragedy and loss, keeping the DCC team focused is a big part of my job. I have truly been inspired by Coach Jason Garrett’s recent ability to face tragedy in the eyes and continue to lead with compassion, support and focus.

As Coach Garrett said in today’s press conference we have to find our unique sources of strength and press on, while keeping Jerry Brown’s memory close to our hearts. In keeping with that line of focus, here’s what this week looks for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders:

We will have two nights of rehearsals at Cowboys Stadium to prepare our feature Pregame Routine.

On Sunday, our Gameday bus departs Valley Ranch at 10:15AM.

11:15AM – 12:00PM – DCC on field rehearsal. On gameday we do a final run thru of our entrance and feature pregame performance followed by player introduction ceremonies, as well as our National Anthem formation. We then run and our 4 feature Quarter Break Dances and review our kickoff dance and touchdown dances to prepare for every gameday situation.

This game to honor the life of Jerry Brown, we will have a moment of silence in the stadium that precedes the National Anthem which will be sung by the Gatlin Brothers.

The Cowboys will welcome Grambling State University Marching Band for halftime.

Thank you to all of our Cowboys fan family for your support during this time; we hope to see you STRONG and LOUD at the stadium when we take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

      My granddaughter, Marley Luna, is 2 years old. For the last 3 days she has been in Cooks Children’s Hospital being tested to see if doctors could find the reason she has seizures. As you can imagine, it was a horrible experience for her and her mom and dad. All kinds of equipment attached to her and she was required to stop taking the meds that prevent seizures. She had 6 seizures the first day she was there. It makes your heart break to see her like that. Yesterday morning about 10am, 2 of your cheerleaders, along with Felix Jones and Cole Beasley came to her room and did autographs and pictures with her, and mom and dad. I just want to say thank you so much for cheering them up. They were overwhelmed. Even Marley at 2yrs old perked up while they were there. Me and her grandmother live close to Lubbock and feel so far away from them and helpless to do anything. I am so glad there are people like ya’ll to give unselfishly of yourselves. Believe me, you made one family very happy yesterday. God Bless you.
