“22 in 22″ Day 20: Breaking the All-Time Rushing Record

Before Emmitt even arrived in Canton, Ohio for the enshrinement ceremony, we participated in a conference call with the Hall of Famer.


Emmitt Smith undoubtedly modeled his game after that of the late Walter Payton.  When Emmitt broke the league’s all-time rushing record, he said:

“Today is a special day for me, my family and the Payton family,” the  33-year-old Smith said during a postgame ceremony on the field. ” Because  with Payton doing what he did in the National Football League and  representing all he represented, he wouldn’t have given a young man like  myself a dream, something to shoot after and a person to look up to and  try to emulate in every way possible.”

“Time Warp 22”. . .Remember when?

Emmitt Smith breaks Walter Payton’s all-time rushing record of 16,726 yards.  Words cannot do this achievement justice.  Watch below.
