SCWA has announced NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith as its 2024 keynote speaker.
In his 15 seasons as an NFL running back, Smith amassed many records that still stand today, including most career rushing yards and most career rushing touchdowns. Smith’s impressive resume includes three Super Bowl championship rings, his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010, and, most recently in 2019, his selection to the NFL 100 All-Time Team.
After retiring from football, Smith served as a TV football analyst and took his television career a step further when he won the third season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. He authored “Game On,” which outlines the principles that helped him succeed on and off the field.
Smith has now transitioned to the role of businessman and entrepreneur operating several companies spanning real estate, construction, and technology. He is active in charitable outreach in the Dallas area and nationally, providing educational opportunities and unique experiences for underserved youth.
At the annual SCWA meeting, February 28-March 1, at the Fort Worth Convention Center, Smith will offer an inspiring and motivating perspective on how the principles of his success in sports have ignited his success in business and life.
