CowBuzz: National Spelling Bee Co-Champ Gets Shoutout From Dez Bryant

Cowboys fans are used to clutch performances from Dez Bryant. They're also used to his signature celebration of throwing up the X. That's exactly what Scripps National Spelling Bee Co-Champ, Nihar Janga, did after a thrilling end to the contest.


The 5th grader and Texas native had made it known that his favorite player was Dez Bryant.

After sealing the victory and throwing up the X, Janga was congratulated by No. 88 himself.

Janga's dad promised him that if he won he would take him to a game at AT&T Stadium this season. Hopefully he'll be able to meet his role model in person. Congratulations, Nihar Janga.
