After waiting through the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft and, unexpectedly, much of the second round, former Texas Longhorns offensive tackle Connor Williams finally got the call. The area code was a familiar one — 972.
As a Coppell native, receiving the call from that area code with the Dallas Cowboys on the other end was a moment that fulfilled the wildest football dreams for Williams... and left him overcome with emotion:

So it looks like all the waiting was worthwhile. Congrats, big guy.
BONUS: Just in case you would like to start crying along with Connor and his family, here’s the audio of the call he received from the Cowboys.
