    Receiver Dez Bryant (88), right, and safety J.J. Wilcox (27) are separated by teammates after a scuffle that resulted after Bryant was hit hard by Wilcox during the blue-white scrimmage at Dallas Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, CA, on Aug 3, 2014.

    Water-logged by the rain? Not enthralled by the return of Josh Hamilton?

    Take heart, two months from today the Cowboys will be in Oxnard for 2015 training camp.

    The team released its camp plans Thursday and will fly to California July 28 and hold the first practice July 30. Can’t make it out West but always wanted to see a training camp practice? You’re in luck. If you’re patient, that is.

    Because a year from now the Cowboys will be moved into their new facility in Frisco, dubbed The Star. Part of the 2016 training camp will be held at the new facility, making this summer the Cowboys’ last to train out of Texas.

    The Star will feature two outdoor practice fields and a 12,000-seat indoor stadium with enough parking to accommodate open practices.

    So if you’re ready for some football, wait two months for training camp and only 14 months for training camp right here in the Metroplex.

    A native Texan who was born in Duncanville and graduated from UT-Arlington, Richie Whitt has been a mainstay in the Metroplex media since 1986. He’s held prominent roles on all media platforms including newspaper (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Observer), radio (105.3 The Fan) and TV (co-host on TXA 21 and numerous guest appearances, including NBC 5). He lives in McKinney with his wife, Sybil, and two very spoiled dogs.
