JULY 30 – AUGUST 1, 2016
SMU Mustang Legend & NFL Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson was back in Dallas July 30-August 1 for the Eric Dickerson All-Star Invitational & All-Star Football Day, a partnership between the Eric Dickerson Foundation and SMU Athletics.
The event included an All-Star Football Day at SMU’s Gerald Ford Stadium on Saturday, July 30, highlighted by a three-hour football camp for approximately 300 kids (grades 2-8) hosted by Dickerson and other NFL Greats – Marcus Allen, Lawrence Taylor, Emmitt Smith and Ronnie Lott among others. There was a Gala Dinner & Auction on Sunday, July 31, followed by the Pro-Am Golf Tournament at the Dallas Athletic Club on Monday, Aug. 1. This event will included over 28 foursomes, each of which was paired with a former NFL or SMU great as their fifth player.
“It has been over 20 years since I hosted an event in Dallas, which was my home away from home during my time at SMU,” explained Dickerson. “I have wanted to come back and host an event and give back to this community. I would like to thank SMU for partnering with me on this event and I am looking forward to helping SMU and the kids of Dallas.”
The proceeds from this event benefited the Eric Dickerson Foundation, Kids-U and SMU Football.
