Legendary Dallas Cowboys defensive standout Dat Nguyen and his family previously owned Big D RV Rockport, now Copano Bay RV Resort, a beautiful piece of heaven on the Texas Gulf Coast that they built over seven years ago.
The Nguyens, former Viet Nam refugees, stand as living testaments to the fulfillment of the American Dream. Having arrived in the United States in 1975, the family went through an amazing journey which took them from an Arkansas refugee camp, where Dat was born, all the way to success as enterpreneurs in the Texas Gulf Coast. As the family built up their restaurant, evolving from a sandwich shop to the popular Hu-Dat Oriental Restaurant in Rockport, young Dat stood out as a stellar athlete, catching the eye of the legendary Texas A & M Aggies. A shinging defensive star for the Aggies, Dat proved his prowess on the gridiron, attracting the attention of America's team, the Dallas Cowboys.
Throughout his five seasons with the Cowboys, Dat built up impressive stats, including 665 total tackles, six sacks and seven interceptions. Although injuries forced him into early retirement, Dat remains active in football, currently serving as a coach for his beloved Aggies Team.
