Cowboys Super Fan ‘Suit Man’ James Wrights Talks Football And Fashion
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – James Wright’s love for the Dallas Cowboys dates back to when he was a little boy. A love that his mother says made him cry every time the Cowboys lost a game.
Fast forward to today, Wright still wears her emotions on her sleeve. His closet is full of Cowboys clothing that looks like a team store.
He says he wears at least one piece of team clothing every day. That includes his nine custom Cowboys suits, earning him the title “Suit Man.”
When James isn’t rooting for the Cowboys, he serves as a first sergeant in the Junior ROTC program at Spruce High School in Dallas ISD.
Wright says she loves the idea of helping students set up for success.
It was those same students who helped James recover from the devastating loss of his wife, Rose, to COVID in late 2021.
James says spending time alone allowed him to tap into what his wife would have wanted for him. She would have wanted him to continue his passion of cheering for the Cowboys.
This season, that passion was rewarded when Cowboys legend Darren Woodson, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, and Rowdy the mascot showed up at Wright’s home to tell him he had been selected as the official Cowboys Fan of the Year. cowboys.
In addition to an 11 1/2-foot statue (in his likeness) that sits in his front yard in DeSoto, James will be attending the NFL Honors Awards Show the night before the Super Bowl in Arizona.
There, you’ll find out if you’re the Captain Morgan NFL Fan of the Year.
Wouldn’t it be great if he wins the award and the Cowboys play for the title the next night? When asked what advice he has for anyone with tremendous passion in life, James replies, “Don’t be ashamed. If you’re passionate about something and you love it…then love it!
