OXNARD, CA -- There's no speech more important than the annual State of the Union, right? Cowboys Nation may have something to say about that.
Wednesday is the day Cowboys fans have been waiting for. The State of the Team Address marks the beginning of training camp.
It's an event many thought owner Jerry Jones might miss this year due to hip replacement surgery last week. But Jerry was front and center in Oxnard, California to open his 27th season at the helm.
“This is the 37th year the Dallas Cowboys have held training camp in Southern California and we are thrilled to be back,” Jones said.
The hottest topic heading into camp? Running Back. Head Coach Jason Garrett says the team can’t wait to see who steps up.
"We’re just excited at that position," Garrett said. "Just like at every position on our football team to see these guys, give them a chance to show us who they are and what role they’re going to fill as the season gets going.”
And as usual, the Cowboys star will shine bright enough to be seen by the entire nation this season starting on ESPN. On August 4, a live two-hour primetime special will be dedicated to the Cowboys' training camp and you can bet that the league's number one fan base will be watching.
So, we kick off another season of high expectations. Let's hope Tony Romo and the Cowboys can deliver on his promise of Super Bowl victory!
