The Sunbelt Builders Show™ has signed three-time Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl Champion Darren Woodson as the 2017 Opening Session Speaker. The three-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection will welcome Sunbelt attendees to the Show on Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 9:30 a.m. inside the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.
The former Cowboy safety played his entire career in Dallas (1992-2004). He was selected by the organization in the second round of the 1992 National Football League Draft (37th overall). Woodson was a member of all three Cowboys Super Bowl champion teams in the 1990s (Super Bowl’s XXVII, XXVIII and XXX) and became the eighth defensive player inducted into the Ring of Honor.
Woodson was one of the most popular players both inside the locker room and as an ambassador in the community. Upon retirement, Woodson joined ESPN as an NFL analyst. He appears on NFL Live and SportsCenter, as well as other ESPN platforms throughout the year.
The quarterback of the team’s defense during its three championship runs Woodson registered career totals of 11 sacks, 23 interceptions and 1,350 tackles, the most in Cowboys franchise history at the time of his retirement in 2004.
In addition to his analyst work for ESPN, he’s involved in a number of businesses and he remains active in the Dallas community, most notably as a board member for the North Texas Chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
A native of Phoenix, Ariz., Woodson earned a Bachelor of Science from Arizona State University in Justice Studies.
