Pro Football Hall of Famer, businessman, and entrepreneur. Is there anything Emmitt Smith can’t do?

RootsTech 2020, the world’s largest family history convention, is pleased to announce that Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher and Super Bowl champion, is coming to RootsTech as a keynote speaker on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

Known for his durability, excellent vision, and extraordinary leg strength, Smith was one of the most electrifying players to ever play the game of football. Today, Smith has transitioned to the role of businessman and entrepreneur and runs several companies spanning real estate, construction, and technology. With his wife, Smith founded the Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities to provide unique experiences and opportunities to underserved youth.

The stories that he can share—both from his playing days and from his own knowledge of his family history—will be perfect for the RootsTech stage.

RootsTech 2020 offers 300+ classes, one-on-one coaching corners, exciting discovery experiences and an exhibition hall filled with the latest in genealogy and technology. RootsTech 2020 Salt Lake City runs February 26—29, 2020. Find out more at RootsTech.org/Salt-Lake.
