Denzel Washington fulfills ‘dream,’ visits Dallas Cowboys training camp


Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington made the trip to Oxnard, California to watch Dallas Cowboys practice Saturday.

The “Training Day” star said in an interview that it was a dream for him to be at training camp and explained how deep his Cowboys fandom ran.

“First of all, I’ve been a Cowboy fan my whole life,” Washington told a collection of media at training camp. “I’m talking about Duane Thomas. I’m talking about Walt Garrison, Calvin Hill, Tony Dorsett. So I’ve been a fan for a long time. Just to be out here is just fun for me.”

He spoke with some players in the locker room beforehand and watched practice on the sideline. Washington admitted that he didn’t attend a Cowboys game last year but joked that he wouldn’t mind sideline passes from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones this season.

Washington was at practice with his son, John David, who stars as Ricky Jarrett in the HBO show “Ballers.” John David was a running back at Morehouse College and signed with the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2006 and spent some time on the team’s practice squad. He also played in NFL Europe and the United Football League.
