Baylor Bear safety, Ahmad Dixon, became a Dallas Cowboy with the 248th pick in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft. And he got the phone call at Vitek's BBQ in Waco, Texas! Needless to say, he was emotional getting the phone call from Valley Ranch saying “It feels amazing,” Dixon said. “This is the team I grew up watching as a kid. Watching the Cowboys is pretty much how I learned how to play football. My late grandmother was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan. I know right now she’s in Heaven going crazy.,

We're happy for Ahmad and wish him the best with Dallas Cowboys!

Dixon's draft capped off a great day for Baylor University football inspiring Head Coach Art Briles to Tweet: "Baylor led the Big 12 and all Texas schools with 5 draft choices
