Product Description

Smith had a career that has been unmatched, as he is the NFL record-holder in rushing yards in a career (18,355), career rushing touchdowns (164), career rushing attempts (4,409) and career 100-yard games (78). He is second all-time to Jerry Rice in total touchdowns with 175. He is the first player in NFL history with 11-consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.

Smith helped lead the Cowboys to three Super Bowl titles, and was named the MVP of Super Bowl XXVII. He owns the NFL postseason records for yards (1,586), rushing touchdowns (19), 100-yard games (7) and consecutive games with a touchdown (9). His 21 total postseason touchdowns tie Thurman Thomas for the NFL record.

Smith becomes the latest in a line of top-flight speakers for the Kickoff Luncheon, joining Terry Bradshaw (2010), Bobby Bowden (2011), Lou Holtz (2012) and current Dallas Cowboy Jason Witten (2013).
