About Emmitt Smith

Emmitt Smith is a retired American football player with an estimated net worth of $50 million. He was born Emmitt James Smith III on May 15, 1969, in Pensacola, Florida, USA. He went to Escambia High School in Pensacola where he played high school football for the Gators. He was named the USA Today and Parade magazine high school player of the year in 1986.

Smith attended the University of Florida through an athletic scholarship and played college football for three seasons from 1987 to 1989. He was named the first-team SEC selection for three years and SEC Player of the Year. He is also the  unanimous first-team All-American who finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy balloting. He is inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a “Gator Great” in 1999 as well as the Gator Football Ring of Honor and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

Emmitt Smith began his professional career as the 17th pick in the first round of the 1990 National Football League (NFL) Draft and played as running back for the Dallas Cowboys. Considered as one of the greatest and the single most complete running backs in the NFL history, he became the league’s all-time rushing leader and broke the record held by Walter Payton.

Smith is an eight-time Pro Bowler who won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys, two under coach Jimmy Johnson and one under gun-toting coach Barry Switzer. He is the only running back to ever win a Super Bowl Championship, the NFL Most Valuable Player award, the NFL rushing crown, and the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award all in the same season in 1993. He is also one of only four running backs to lead the NFL in rushing three or more consecutive seasons along with Steve Van Buren, Jim Brown and Earl Campbell.

Emmitt Smith is one of the two non-kickers in NFL history to have scored more than 1,000 career points, the other being from Jerry Rice. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010, the first player from the 1990 NFL Draft to be inducted.

Smith also played for the Arizona Cardinals between 2003 and 2004. He announced his retirement in February 2005 and the Cardinals released him from his contract. He signed a one-day deal with the Cowboys for a dollar so he could retire from the game as a member of the team that he made his name with.

After retirement, he showed his dancing skills in 2006 when he appeared on the third season of Dancing with the Stars along with Cheryl Burke. He currently serves as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Emmitt Smith Enterprises, an umbrella company of a host of companies taking the Emmitt Smith brand.
