Bennett Thankful To Be East Texas' Biggest Cowboys Fan

Last month, KLTV 7 viewers voted Longview's Barry Bennett East Texas' Biggest Cowboys Fan.

Barry received more than 2,700 votes in the contest. Tuesday, KLTV 7 Sports Director Maya Golden presented Barry with his customized authentic Cowboys jersey proclaiming him the number one "Superfan."

Barry was also given a trophy with the words "East Texas' Biggest Cowboys Fan."

Barry is battling cancer and had his treatments moved from Houston to Longview so he could continue to check out his favorite team every Sunday. Barry said he is thankful for all the support as he continues his treatments.

"I want to thank all the gentlemen in my Sunday school class for even nominating me," Barry said. "I had no idea until I got a call from (KLTV). I want to thank all the people that voted for me. It's been nice."

Barry plans to attend the Cowboys Thanksgiving game against Seattle and says he hopes to be done with his treatment by December.
