Kappa Sigma Cowboy

Frat Guy of the Week: Dallas Cowboys' Owner Jerry Jones

Before he was calling the shots for the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones was just another beer sluggin' frat guy at the University of Arkansas.

Raised in North Little Rock, Ark., Jones was a star runningback in high school and was awarded a football scholarship to play for the Razorbacks. At Arkansas, Jones joined Kappa Sigma fraternity and played alongside two men he would later hire to coach the Cowboys, Barry Swtizer and Jimmy Johnson.

After college, Jones made bank in an Oklahoma oil and gas exploration business and in 1989 bought the Cowboys.

Jones went on to win three Super Bowls in the 1990s with the team and remains the franchises owner today. He even made an appearance in the 1998 movie 'BASEketball' and also owns the Dallas Desperados, an Arena Football League team.

The Cowboys are sitting pretty in this year's playoffs, finishing the 2007 regular season with a 13-3 record and the top seed in the National Football Conference.
