Emmitt Smith to Join Dancing With the Stars All-Star Season

Emmitt Smith will join the upcoming season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars All-Star season.

Smith is one of Dallas' favorite sons. The former Dallas Cowboy legend and NFL Hall of Famer is one of the nicest guys I know, a great family man, successful business man, runs a charity and he's also got some smooth moves! Partnered with dancer Cheryl Burke, he won his season of Dancing With the Stars in 2006 and has been a fan favorite ever since.

"I’ve been a competitor all my life and when DWTS called about an All-Stars show, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to showcase my skills on the dance floor again," says Smith.  "Participating in the show will provide a great platform for me to share more about Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities, the non-profit that my wife and I run which supports underserved youth, particularly in North Texas. I may be older than the last time I took the dance floor, but I don’t believe I’ve lost a step because I take good care of my body and mind."

Dancing With the Stars All-Stars will debut September 24 on ABC.
