CowBuzz: From Honors to Hall of Fame, Social Media Erupted In Congratulations

It was a successful and exciting first weekend of February for the Dallas Cowboys organization. Not in the way that they had potentially hoped for, but historic nonetheless.

As most of the National Football League descended upon Houston for the Super Bowl week festivities, the team started celebrating early on Saturday as Dak Prescott was announced as the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Followed by his head coach Jason Garrett receiving the award for AP Coach of the Year after he led the team to a 13-3 record, the largest one-season turnaround in club history. 

However, the night was capped off with team owner/general manager Jerry Jones officially named a Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2017 inductee. For his many accomplishments during his time he's been voted in as a contributor to the sport.

His impact on the NFL since purchasing the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 is virtually immeasurable. Players and alumni quickly took to social media to share their congratulations.

Even though the 2016 season was cut short, the team will look ahead to 2017 with high hopes, starting with a significant August weekend in Canton, Ohio.
