Job advisers always recommend standing out from the crowd when looking to land your dream job. Anthony Wallace is hoping that tact will get him a shot with the Dallas Cowboys.

The former University of North Texas linebacker didn’t get drafted in April and wasn’t picked up as a free agent. Believing he can play in the NFL, Wallace decided to take things in his own hands and headed to Cowboys headquarters at Valley Ranch on Wednesday.

“An opportunity is all I need,” Wallace wrote on a piece of cardboard.

Wallace, who went from Dallas Skyline to the Oregon Ducks, before transferring to the Mean Green in Denton, had 81 tackles last season.
