WATCH: Jason Witten Talks Career With Cowboys At Players’ Tribune

“Gold Jack Witt” carries a presence with him around the , a 14 year veteran that has been a model of consistency on the field and a role model for so many off of it. Jason Witten spoke with the media and to the Players’ Tribune recently, discussing everything from his early career to plans for life after America’s Team.

“It seemed like you had the USA, America, and then Texas” – Jason Witten on being drafted by the Dallas back in 2003.

The 2012 winner of the Award (which Cowboys C is nominated for this season), Witten also discussed his ‘Jason Witten Collegiate Man Of The Year Award‘ – an honor that will be given out at the college level for the first time at the end of this season.

This Witten award will be granted to a player, “who has demonstrated a record of by exhibiting exceptional courage, integrity and sportsmanship both on and off the field”.

Also from Jason Witten’s own website, we learn that, “the award honors the type of exemplary character and commitment to community, family and teammates demonstrated by Jason Witten”.

As you hear at the end of the video, Witten’s current focus remains clear-cut. Bringing an elusive sixth championship to Dallas is still a goal he is chasing strong, as the Cowboys are fighting for their playoff lives following a 13-3 season a year ago.

If in need of a lesson on how to handle adversity and always look forward, the Cowboys won’t have to look much further than their tight end #82 though.
