SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Brighton High School and new Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Simi Fehoko shared a childhood picture in which he sported the jersey of his NFL team.

The Cowboys selected Fehoko with the No. 179 overall pick during the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft on Saturday, May 1.

After Fehoko was drafted, he posted a photo from his childhood in which he was wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey and helmet.

“It’s been written,” Fehoko posted alongside the photo.

Before getting drafted by Dallas and his time in college at Stanford, Fehoko was a star player for the Brighton Bengals.

Fehoko was rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 1 recruit in the state of Utah in 2016 by 247Sports.

He committed to Stanford over offers from Clemson, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, Utah, Washington, Utah State, and Vanderbilt.
