Dallas Cowboys: a famous fanbase
Former President George W. Bush
Among the celebrity Dallas Cowboy fans, the most recognizable figure is former President George W. Bush, who once held the highest political post in the nation. Although he calls Dallas home, it comes directly to his support of the Cowboys and the Dallas-based Major League baseball team, Texas Rangers, where he served as an active owner. Bush frequents the games during the season and most recently took part with former First Lady Laura Bush in the traditional Sunday's coin flip as part of the "Salute to Service" game.
When he was young, he played for the Boys Club in Mt. Vernon and the club he grew up with called the Red Raiders. Washington wanted to go to Texas Tech because they were the Red Raiders, which got him involved with Texas football. Soon after, he started watching the University of Texas, that's how he landed with the Cowboys, and he never stopped since. After dropping by one of the Cowboys' training camps, he described the experience as a "dream visit."
