Thank you for opportunity to meet sports star

Editor, the Advocate:

The evening of May 7 was wonderful - Randy, Janie, Kim and Don spoke well, and Coach Mumphord did a great rendition of the National Anthem.

Habitat for Humanity is doing a good job in our community - one speaker effectively explained Habitat's important role and why she was committed to volunteering.

The highlight was, of course, listening to Emmitt Smith's story of determination, dedication and allowing God to work his plan. His openness and wonderful smile engaged everyone. My husband, Jack, grew up a Florida Gator fan in Jacksonville. He relates that when Emmitt left the Gators to become a Dallas Cowboy, he became a Dallas Cowboys fan.

His football accomplishments are evidence of his excellence - his willingness to put himself out there on "Dancing with the Stars" - and win it - reflect his great spirit.

Thank you, Victoria Advocate, for the opportunity to win the "Meet and Greet" Emmitt Smith contest on Advosports.com.
