It’s a tale as old as time. The rookies have to put on a show.
HBO’s Hard Knocks gives us a glimpse of this every training camp season. NFL rookies are always put through some sort of ringer by their veteran leaders, it’s all fun ribbing and welcoming to the National Football League.
Bo Scarbrough is obviously no exception to this tradition because, well, he’s a rookie. The Cowboys drafted the former Alabama running back in the seventh round a few months ago, and he might be something special if things go his way.
During an interview with ESPN San Antonio’s The Blitz, Bo disclosed what song he sang as part of his rookie duties. He could have gone a variety of directions, but he picked a classic. Bo sang his heart out to “My Girl” by The Temptations. I told you, a classic.
The best part about this whole thing isn’t even that Bo flat out announced what song he sang, but that he replicated it without any hesitation. He’s obviously down for a good time and has a personality that rides along with whatever’s thrown his way, even if it’s singing.
Maybe Cole Beasley’s next album will have a song featuring Scarbrough offering some smooth vocals on a lower-tempo song. It could be great, right? Or not.
Besides the singing, Scarbrough talks a lot about football, training camp, Ezekiel Elliott and all kinds of other stuff in the interview. Its’ worth a listen.
