LUFKIN, TEXAS — Dal­las Cow­boys wide re­ceiver Dez Bryant re­turned to his East Texas home­town Thurs­day to thank sup­port­ers with free bar­be­cue that drew 3,000 fans at an out­door af­ter­noon event park that in­cluded games and a chance to meet the NFL star, as tem­per­a­tures reached 40 C.

Lufkin po­lice spokesper­son Jessica Peb­sworth says ev­ery­one was ex­cited to see Bryant and he was a great host.

Bryant says he de­cided a cou­ple of days ear­lier to throw the catered event in Lufkin, a city of about 36,000, lo­cated 177 kilo­me­tres north­east of Houston.

The Cow­boys open camp next week in Ox­nard, CA.
