“Greatest Moment of My Life.”

Rookie tight end Dalton Schultz is pretty fast for a tight end; he ran a 4.75 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.  He needed all his speed to run from the practice field at Dallas Cowboys Training Camp on Saturday afternoon to catch a flight to be present for the birth of his first-born son.

By Saturday night at 11:45pm, Schultz was on-site for the birth of his baby boy, Theodore James, who made his debut at an impressive 7 pounds, 8 ounces, and 20-inches.

Schultz went to Twitter to share news of his son’s arrival and a precious photo:

Earlier in the spring, Schultz Tweeted a photo of his name being announced by the Cowboys in the 4thround of the 2018 NFL Draft.  For that draft-day Tweet, Schultz wrote a caption: “Greatest Moment of My Life.”

Following baby Theodore James’ arrival, Schultz Re-Tweeted the Draft Day photo with a new caption: “Second Best Now”.

Hey, Schultz already has the hang of being a new daddy!

Schultz was obviously excused from Sunday’s practice in Oxnard, and players had a scheduled day off on Monday which means Schultz had a couple of extra days to bond with his new son.

Upon return to Oxnard, Schultz will be back with the tight ends corps.  The rookie from Stanford who is competing alongside Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin, Rico Gathers, and David Wells.
