Donovan Wilson (Woodlawn, Texas A&M) and Devin White (North Webster, LSU) were bright spots for the roster of 15 local players in the NFL during Week 2.
For the fifth time in his career (first since 2020), Wilson played every snap on defense for the Dallas Cowboys while Tampa Bay’s White manhandled the New Orleans Saints.
Check out our statistical recap for our local NFL stars.
