    LANCASTER – With tears flowing down her face and her voice trembling Tuesday afternoon, JoAnn Trevino stood outside the Lancaster football field house asking to speak to Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

    On Sept. 3 – Labor Day night – Trevino; her husband, Joe; daughter, Clara Coco; and 4-year-old autistic grandson, David Lopez, lost everything they owned when their rental home in Hutchins – a city just south of Dallas – was totally destroyed by a fire.

    The family woke up about 2 a.m. with the home fully engulfed in flames but was able to escape. However, the family pet – a dog they’ve had for six years – died in the fire. Without any insurance coverage, it was a total loss.

    Two days before the Cowboys season opener at the New York Giants, Ware immediately reached out to the family, buying five complete outfits (from a Reebok outlet in Allen) for each family member, blankets, towels, toiletries and even toys for Trevino’s grandson. Three days after the fire, one of Ware’s assistants delivered all the items to the family at a hotel in Cedar Hill.

    Great Story! He is a good man! Football is a game. Would you rather be remembered for what you did on the field or off the field where it really counts?

    I know his, Romo's, and Witten's answer. It would be off the field.

    Hats off to DeMarcus for his generosity. Good to know there are still people like this around. Regardless of being a Cowboys' star player or not, seeing random acts like this always helps to renew one's faith in humanity. He's certainly worthy of much respect.

    No surprise at all. Ware, like Witten and Romo, is a great person that goes above and beyond how great they are on the football field for the Dallas Cowboys.

    Those three guys are three guys Cowboys fans should always be as proud as they can that they're Dallas Cowboys and very likely all three will retire Dallas Cowboys.
