Emmitt Smith spoke this afternoon at the Shreveport Convention Center for the Duck Commander Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon. The interview style session was moderated by Tim Brando.

Smith spoke about his college days at Florida, his Superbowl teams with the Dallas Cowboys, and even became choked up when talking about his relationship with Walter Payton.

The NFL’s all time leading rusher even spoke about his experience winning Dancing with the Stars.

Willie Robertson and several others in the Duck Commander family were in attendance and gave a brief welcome and prayer before the program.
