Emmitt Smith fulfills student’s dream [HD]

Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities invited a long list of celebrity friends for a weekend of fun while making dreams come true for underprivileged kids.

“Instead of taking all the attention on himself I love the fact that he’s allowing the Hall of Fame year to be a platform to bring attention to the charity,” said Charity President Pat Smith.

“Emmitt and Pat do these in a classy way,” said basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Leiberman.

“Everybody’s going to show up for Emmitt,” said 2007 NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.

“I know that their heart and their minds are committed to helping the under served children of this community,” said former Dallas Stars Goalie Marty Turco.

Emmitt Smith Hall of Fame Trip of a Lifetime is a contest Pat and Emmitt decided to open up to kids living in the Dallas metroplex. The winner will travel with the Smith family on August 7th to Canton, Ohio for Emmitt’s induction into the NFL Hall of Fame.

“He does a lot of things that people don’t know about,” said former Dallas Cowboys fullback Daryl Johnston. “When we went to the launch of the foundation even I learned some things that Emmitt and Pat have been doing for years.”

Former teammate Michael Irvin says he appreciates and understands what Smith is doing.

“Unless you show them and put them in a place where they’re exposed to different things they’ll never reach greater things,” said Irvin.

Emmitt Smith took to the green for a golf tournament and then all team contest finalists came out waiting with anticipation to hear who would be the winner. That person is Prentice Richmond.

“My thought is did I win or is it a dream,” said contest winner Prentice Richmond.

“To live on his own and to have the attitude and the spirit that Prentice has that speak volumes,” said NFL Hall of Fame inductee Emmitt Smith.

Smith is hoping exposure will help give Richmond the hope to achieve even more then what he’s already doing.

“He could do anything that’s negative but he chose a different path,” said Emmitt Smith. “That to me is what this is all about.”

    Candice! Your reporting is beautiful! You are doing a fantastic service/job! You are going places. I pray for you and your success! Piggybacking on Lawson’s reply, perhaps, you will consider covering family reunions! Since ours will be in East Texas in 2011 & it is not in the Dallas area, you can research and focus on family reunions that are planned for Dallas. Additionally, why don’t you consider covering Jack and Jill and other families in social organizations? Those are all positive impacts that are left on the families. Check out Girl Scouts and Eagle Scout Boy Scouts! Surely, they’re making a difference in the lives of others in the community.
