On Tuesday, Sept. 10 at noon, D.D. Lewis, a former Dallas Cowboy, will be speaking at the Texan Club Luncheon. The luncheon will be located in the Thompson Student Center Ballrooms.

Lewis is not only a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, but in his 13 seasons in the NFL, he has also appeared in five super bowls and won two, one in 1972 and the other in 1978. Lewis currently holds the Cowboys playoff record with 27 games played, and is tied for third in Cowboy’s history for 135 consecutive games started.

While in the NFL, Lewis competed in 12 NFC Divisional Contests and nine NFC Championship Games. He is one of eight NFL players who have played in five Super Bowls: (V, VI, X, XII and XIII).

Lewis represented the Cowboys for 13 years as #50. After his retirement following the 1981 season, he was voted “Most Popular Player” by fans and awarded with the Bart Starr Meritorious Award the same year.

Lewis will be speaking over how drug and alcohol abuse can hinder you. He will also tell his story of hope, mentoring and second chances. The luncheon is open to the public, so non-Texan Club members will be able to attend.

To reserve your seat for the luncheon, call Cathy Doyle in the athletics office at (254) 968-9178.
