Dez Bryant selected to Pro Bowl

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - For the first time in his career, Lufkin's own Dez Bryant is a pro football all-star.

The fifth-year pro on the Dallas Cowboys was selected to the roster through combined voting by fans, players and coaches.

"Got voted to my first pro bowl....I'm speechless right now....thank you God...." Bryant posted on his Facebook page.

The 2014 Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 26. This is the first year the players will not be divided by conference, but through picks by captains Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice.
