On September 11th Ezekiel Elliott will officially take the field as the Cowboys rookie running back. A role that has been held by some of the NFL's greatest, including the all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith and Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett.
On Monday the Cowboys hosted their first Alumni/Family night at their new world headquarters, The Star. Post practice, current players were able to mix and mingle with former players, two of those to meet up were Elliott and Dorsett. Even with a generational gap they took to social media to share their respects for one another. https://twitter.com/EzekielElliott/status/770412470464761856
This is high praise for the young rookie who will look to fill these big shoes.
