After being crowned co-champion of the Scripps Spelling Bee, Nihar Janga threw up Dez Bryant’s signature “X” celebration on the stage in a tribute to his favorite athlete.

The Cowboys wide receiver saw the move and tweeted out that he hoped to meet the champion soon, and on Wednesday Janga got to head to the team’s Valley Ranch headquarters to meet some members of the team.

Janga is spending the day at the facility as the team conducts off-season workouts. He is scheduled to meet Bryant after practice is finished.
