Many people in this world have hidden talents. Apparently, Dallas Cowboys WR Simi Fehoko is one of them. The Stanford product didn’t make much of an impact in his first year in the league, only playing in five games. The Cowboys drafted Fehoko in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Dallas likely saw promise in Fehoko’s size and ability. At his Pro Day, Fehoko ranked in at 6-4, 222 pounds.
While Fehoko was largely overshadowed by a strong WR corps, Fehoko could definitely be used more in the future, especially if Dallas loses key free agents. Fehoko is the latest Cowboy to reveal a hidden talent. First, we saw Trevon Diggs’ acrobatic ability in the Pro Bowl’s Best Catch competition. Then, we saw Micah Parsons’ bowling ability in the offseason. Now, Fehoko brought out his vocal chops in an interview with 105.3 The Fan.
At some point in the conversation, Fehoko must have shared that he likes to sing because the video below starts with a broadcaster asking if Fehoko is willing to drop a verse. The rookie initially hesitates and claims his voice isn’t ready for a quick sample. But the peer pressure eventually sinks in.
The interviewers request him to sing a bit of the song “Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Stapleton. Fehoko clears his throat and sings a verse. It’s actually pretty good! You can hear for yourself in the tweet below.
Cowboys WR reveals he has a pretty good singing voice when he drops a verse of Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” during an interview
A lot of people think they can sing. But this was actually pretty good. One of the interviewers responds with, “no, YOU are as smooth as Tennessee whiskey” and quickly follows that with “I’m jealous of your wife, Simi. And you can tell her I said that.”
The offseason is always a great time to learn more about the players and see what they choose to do in their free time. It’s nice to humanize these athletes a bit and see what they like to do off the field. Let’s hope Fehoko is spending as much time practicing and getting ready for next season as he is singing songs.
