    Three-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowl selection, Darren
    Woodson is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Dallas Cowboys uniform.
    The vocal leader of the defense during the Cowboys 1990's Super Bowl teams,
    Woodson was one of the most popular players both inside the clubhouse 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.

    Woodson earned a reputation as one of the hardest hitters and most ferocious
    strong safeties in the NFL during his 13 seasons (1992-2004), all with the Dallas
    Cowboys. The quarterback of the team’s defense during its three championship
    runs in the 1990s (Super Bowl’s XXVII, XXVIII and XXX), 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.

    A native of Phoenix, Woodson was a second round pick in the 1992 NFL Draft
    (37th overall) from Arizona State University, where he was a converted
    linebacker. He earned a bachelor of science from ASU in Justice Studies.

    In addition to his analyst work for ESPN, Woodson is 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.
