Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott personally delivered new shoes and equipment to football players at South Oak Cliff High School Tuesday.

The appearance was a surprise to the student athletes, and Elliott took the time to speak to them about the commitment that it takes to get to the top of the game.

“Surprised the South Oak Cliff football team with some new sneakers and outfits. It’s important to uplift our communities,” Elliott stated on YouTube.

SOC head coach Jason Todd told KXAS that Elliott spoke to the principal, Willie F. Johnson, and took a tour of the school.
