A crowd of 3,000 responded when Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant offered to throw an impromptu barbecue and kickball game in his hometown of Lufkin, Texas.

Bryant took part in the kickball game, took pictures with fans, and signed autographs at Thursday’s event.

He even shut down a local barbecue joint in order to provide free food for guests.

Bryant wasn’t shy to show off the bill, which cost him more than $16,000.

For an added touch, he wore socks representing his local Lufkin High School Panthers.
