Redskins OL Ty Nsekhe Gives Tickets to Families of Dallas Police Shooting Victims
Growing up in Arlington, Texas, Washington Redskins offensive lineman Ty Nsekhe possibly grew up as a Dallas Cowboys fan. Even though he now plays for the Cowboys’ arch rivals, Nsekhe still wanted to do something special for the families of the policeman who were gunned down by a sniper in Dallas a few months ago.
Ty decided to donate 10 tickets for Thursday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium to those families.
“I’m just hoping to just bring some light,” Nsekhe said. “One day of joy. I don’t know if they’ve been able to see a Cowboys game before. If they haven’t, hopefully it’s a great experience for them.”
Five officers died while nine other officers were wounded that day.
“I was watching it on TV and, wow, it was crazy because it was right in your backyard,” Nsekhe said. “It felt like it was down the street. It was weird. In my past, I’ve done things that I would regret, but I’ve never wanted to inflict any bodily harm against the police. I’m not that type because I look at everybody as a human being first. Just to see human beings in situations like that, that’s not really something I look as a positive.”
