Dallas Cowboys players and cheerleaders visit North Texas hospitals

Dallas Cowboys players and cheerleaders spent the morning spreading cheer, signing gifts and visiting patients at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children on Monday. The players, led by veteran linebacker Sean Lee and running back Ezekiel Elliott, arrived on a team bus carrying sacks full of gifts for excited patients. After a brief introduction from Robert L. Walker, the President/CEO of Scottish Rite Hospital, the players began greeting families and smiling for photos.
 
Lee led a group of Cowboys players and cheerleaders through the hospital to bring the Cowboys Christmas spirit to patients in their rooms while Elliott and others signed footballs, pictures and more for families in the atrium.
 
“It means a lot to be able to come out here and give back to the community,” offensive lineman Joe Looney said. “We’re so blessed to do what we do, and to come out here and see these kids and the smiles on their faces really makes our day more than it makes theirs.”
