We are thrilled to announce that Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher and Super Bowl champion, is coming to RootsTech as a keynote speaker on Saturday, February 29, 2020.
Known for his durability, excellent vision, and extraordinary leg strength, Smith was one of the most electrifying players to ever play the game of football.
