Dallas Cowboys Legend DeMarcus Ware Inducted Into Franchise’s ‘Ring Of Honor,’ Team Owner Calls Him Wrong Name

Former Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware was inducted into the team’s coveted Ring Of Honor on Sunday, Oct. 29. Ware, who holds the franchise record for all-time sacks leader, was introduced by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who mistakenly referred to him as “DeMarcus Lawrence” before fixing his error, Cowboys Wire reports.

Ware joins Cowboys fan favorites Emmitt Smith, Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, and Bob Lilly, who received the team’s first Ring Of Honor induction on Nov. 23, 1975. Only 23 players have received the distinguished distinction in the franchise’s history.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be here because every time I stepped into the old Cowboys stadium to the new Cowboys stadium, I told God, ‘You have six days to prepare this beast,’” Ware said during the ceremony. “Being in this ring, there [are] no words I can say of how grateful I am to have my family here because I couldn’t have done it without them.”

With Jones by his side, the Hall of Famer also paid tribute to the team’s ownership and dedicated fanbase. “To have the Jones family do the things that they have done from old Cowboys stadium to the new Cowboys stadium, blessing us with this awesome colosseum,” he continued. “And last, the greatest fans in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys Nation!”
