SuperBowl MVP Troy Aikman speaks at PwC SMU Athletic Forum Luncheon

Just in time for football season, approximately 800 people gathered in the Khmer Pavilion of the Hilton Anatole last week for a rather intimate and personal meeting with SuperBowl Champ Troy Aikman. Troy Aikman and Brad Sham

Brad Sham - "The Voice of the Dallas Cowboys" - interviewed Aikman on stage while sports buffs, SMU alum, Cowboys fans, and even former teammates, listened in on the conversation. Troy Aikman holds a very impressive resume, including Lead Analyst with NFL on Fox for the past ten years. Daryl Johnston, Charles Haley, Troy Aikman

Aikman shared his thoughts on the recent Big 12 and SEC shufflings in the college world, and he also gave us insight into the NFL world. He joked about working alongside a gorilla in his television commercials for endorsement deals, and he proudly spoke of working under his mentor, Roger Staubach. Aikman said, "I can only hope that I can be to Tony Romo or another future quarterback what Roger has been to me."
