DCRB Dancer - Devan | 2020

What's good, Cowboys Nation!

First off, I am grateful for the opportunity to continue doing something I love with an amazing group of people and to be involved with one of the most known brands in the world. I am excited for my second year with the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers and I look forward to being a part of another groundbreaking year for the first co-ed dance team in the NFL.

I was born and raised in Oklahoma and attended the University of Central Oklahoma as a General Education major with a Minor in Dance. During my time at UCO, I was involved with numerous student engagements and mentoring programs.

My faith in God is #1. I am also very lucky to have a loving group of friends and family who are always supportive and encouraging.

Finally, a special thank you to Cowboys Nation for being the best fans in the NFL. Let's show the world what it means to be a part of America's Team!

Favorite Quotes: My favorite quote is "The test of a man is the fight that he makes, the grit that he daily shows, the way he stands upon his feet, and takes life's numerous bumps and blows. A coward can smile when there's naught to fear. And nothing his progress bars, but it takes a man to stand and cheer, while the other fellow stares. It isn't the victory after all, but the fight that a Brother makes. A man when driven against the wall, still stands erect and takes the blows of fate. With his head held high, bleeding, bruised and pale, is the man who will win, and fate defied, for he isn't afraid to fail!" – Author Unknown
