FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- It took until his fourth season with the Dallas Cowboys for Bishop Luers and Purdue Alum Anthony Spencer to play football again in Indiana, and it finally came Sunday.

The 6-3 260 pound Spencer is all over the field for the Cowboys, who made him their first round pick in 2007.

He is listed as a linebacker, but will line up as a pass rushing end a lot, as he did at Purdue, and do it from all over the field, or in the middle as a true linebacker.

Sunday was the first time he played in Indy since the last of his three trips to state with Luers, how did it feel, and how many tickets did he have to come up with

Spencer on Sunday racked up four tackles, three of them solos, setting sail to get to Peyton Manning on most every snap.

He's working under a new head coach now, and says he respects both former Coach Wade Phillips and new Coach Jason Garrett

And just to let you know, he doesn't appear to have changed from the quick smiling kid we have known, and he does remember us back here with a wave walking off the field.
