Romo Excited About Wisconsin Connection

Rookie center Travis Frederick grew up a stone's throw away from where Tony Romo was raised



    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is from Burlington, Wisconsin. The man who will (almost certainly) be delivering the ball and protecting Romo in 2013 is first round pick, Travis Frederick, a native of Walworth, Wisconsin. The two cities collide in the center of the state.

    Back in said home state to host a football camp this week, Romo said he was thrilled to be playing with a fellow from his own backyard.

    It's rare,” Romo said of Frederick coming to Dallas, per ESPN Dallas. “I didn't expect that, but Doug Free is also from here. Travis has done a great job, and he's a real smart kid. He picks things up fast, and that will help him. I'm excited about playing with him.”
