When Emmitt Smith first chose to play football, he was considered too small for the sport. However, he managed to impress his fans and ascended the ladder of success with his great talent and sheer perseverance to outshine others in his league. He played football for the University of Florida before leaving freshman year to play for his dream team, the ‘Dallas Cowboys’. In his career, he became NFL’s unsurpassed leading rusher and won a number of awards. Apart from his football career, he also appeared on television for the popular show, ‘Dancing with the Stars’. He is a major contributor to the large successes that the Dallas Cowboys have enjoyed. His entire career total involves a stunning record of 18,355 yards, 164 touchdowns and 515 receptions. Apart from this impressive record, he has also single-handedly won three Super Bowl titles and won four NFL rushing titles. This Floridian is considered as one of the most influential American football players in sporting history because he became the first ever chief rusher in NFL history. Although the Dallas Cowboys were doing fairly well before his entry, with Emmitt on board, the team tasted success on a more frequent basis, season after season, bringing them back at the top of the NFL board.
