CowBuzz: Spelling Bee Co-Champion Earns Star Treatment to Meet Dez

Immediately following his final word at the Scripps' National Spelling Bee, Nihar Jenga celebrated his co-championship by throwing up the X. Texas Native, Jenga is a proud Dez Bryant fan and had no idea that his reaction would gain attention from No. 88 himself.

Prior to the Spelling Bee, Janga's father had promised him that if he won he would gladly take him to a game at AT&T Stadium. However, I'm sure that Janga never imagined he would actually be able to meet his role model, Dez Bryant in person.

After his media tour it was arranged that Janga and his family would be able to come out for the second day of minicamp.

When his family arrived they were welcomed with a tour of the Valley Ranch training facility. He made a quick stop on the podcast Talkin' Cowboys and then waited to watch Coach Garrett's press conference.

After sitting through the press conference he bravely asked Coach Garrett if he could spell his winning word "gesellschaft", but Garrett turned the tables and asked him to come speak at the podium.

Then it was time for practice, the moment he'd been waiting for, to get a glimpse of his Dez Bryant, but before hitting the field he was suddenly embraced by the star wide receiver.

Following his final word at the Scripps' National Spelling Bee, Nihar Jenga celebrated his co-championship by throwing up the X. Nihar and his family were able to visit the Cowboys at Valley Ranch, and meet his hero, Dez Bryant.

Being crowned Spelling Bee champ, check. Meeting Dez Bryant, check. Now all that's left is attending a Cowboys' game at AT&T Stadium! It's been a big year for the big speller.
