Keith Brooking admitted when interviewed on Cowboy Insider, that he has had Sunday’s game against his former team of ten years, circled on his calendar since coming to Dallas. He thinks it will be a lot of fun, but at the end of day it isn’t about facing my old team, it is about us winning against a very good team. That is most important.
He added that he will prepare for the game, play confident and fly around and try to make plays to help the team win.<
Keith has only played on football team’s in the state of Georgia, from East Coweta High School in Senola GA, college football at Georgia Tech and then on to the Atlanta Falcons.
At age 34, moving to Dallas with his wife and two small children Ella and Logan has been refreshing. It is new and so far has been a lot of fun. Keith’s two children are in preschool, and have adjusted well to move.
The thing I noticed most in the interview was how dedicated he seemed to the team. He is by all means a team player. Bringing Brooking to Dallas is one of Wade Phillips best moves since becoming head coach. Brooking is a natural leader on and off the field. I think he has added a spark to the defense playing well with J-Ratt and Ware. He also is a veteran and can help develop young players. He has been to 5 Pro-Bowls and is working on heading to Hawaii this year the way he is playing.
I am quickly becoming a fan of #51!
