Stan "Tiger" Shults
Tiger was born in 1960, the same year as the Cowboys, and he grew up going to games with his father. Tiger leads hundreds of “Gate 6” Tailgaters in a weekly pep rally from the back of his GMC pickup, pumping up fans before the game. His daughter, Meredith Landry, was induced early so he wouldn’t miss the last game of the 2004 season.
Cy lives for football, and his tailgating friends are his family. He doesn’t always go into the stadium, but he’s always in the parking lot. Cy’s grilling trailer, affectionately named “The Liza: One Hot Smokin’ Bitch,” is his base of operations, and every week he fires her up to BBQ for hundreds of fans.
