Jerry Jones to DeVonte Holloman: We're going to put a star on your helmet

South Carolina linebacker DeVonte Holloman, drafted by the Cowboys on Saturday, spent Sunday afternoon in Beaufort celebrating with the family of his fiancee Angelina Whalen, a former Battery Creek volleyball player.

As a testament to how big the NFL draft has become or hard-core fans, the Dallas Cowboys website has links to recordings of the phone calls to all of the team's draft picks by owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett.

"We're going to put a star on your helmet," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Holloman.

If you're a Cowboys fan or a Gamecocks fan, give the calls a listen. They're interesting.
