Scripps National Spelling Bee co-champion Nihar Janga gained quite a bit of fame Thursday night.
Jahar is such a star that Dez Bryant is just hoping to meet the 11-year-old.
Janga and Jairam Harthwar finished in a tie and shared the title. When Harthwar went to high-five him, Janga left him hanging and instead threw up Bryant’s famous “X” hand signal.

Bryant was so thrilled to see his trademark sign being used that he wants to invite Janga to a Cowboys game.

Maybe Bryant can even get an autograph from his spelling hero. Perhaps he idolizes him so much that he’ll never misspell a word again.
