WNSP’s Randy Kennedy sat down with the Florida and Dallas Cowboys legend on Monday. Smith, the MVP of Super Bowl XXVIII, has two additional championship rings (for XXVII and XXX), as well as two MVP awards, eight Pro Bowl appearances and an Offensive Rookie of the Year Award on his resume.
Kennedy and Smith spoke about his career at Florida, playing with Mobile native Sherman Williams, and the evolution of the NFL running back.
The Pensacola native and Escambia High School alumnus will cross the state line June 15 for the Palmer-Williams Group’s “A Dinner with Emmitt Smith,” a gala held by Williams David Palmer’s non-profit organization. The Palmer-Williams Group “provides youth development programs to assist and guide disadvantaged youth,” according to its website.
“Helping out the Palmer-Williams [Group]… that’s really what the gift of being blessed is all about,” Smith said. “It’s about being able to share some of those blessings with others.”
Smith will be the keynote speaker at the event. “A Dinner with Emmitt Smith” begins at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 15 at The Grounds.
