Dez Bryant made a kid’s day Tuesday at training camp.
Joshua Williams, celebrating his ninth birthday, couldn’t believe it when Bryant came over to sign an autograph for him after practice. That moment made the youngster emotional and Bryant brought him onto the field to play a brief game of catch.
Williams couldn’t stop crying afterward.
“I’ve been there,” Bryant told him.
Never miss a local story.
Said Joshua’s mom, Jessica: “It meant a lot to him.”
The family resides in Bellflower, Calif., and made the drive up north for the day.
So how do you top this moment for his 10th birthday?
“I don’t know,” Jessica said, laughing. “He got a GoPro. He got all of his gear. He got this [moment with Bryant]. I don’t know what I’m going to do next year.”
