Donovan Wilson made Woodlawn High School proud in primetime Monday night. The Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback was instrumental in a 23-16 victory against the New York Giants.
Wilson posted a team-high 11 tackles, including a sack, added two quarterback hits and a pass defended while playing 100 percent of the snaps on defense.
For the season, quarterbacks are 2-of-6 for 9 yards and an INT while targeting Wilson.
