Former Dallas Cowboys player Darren Woodson has been announced as the keynote speaker of this year’s Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl Kickoff Luncheon.

The luncheon will take place on January 3 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Woodson, a three-time Super Bowl champion, will address the teams, coaches and fans before the 17th edition of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

The bowl game honors the nation’s armed force members and features all three military academies.

The game will be played Saturday, Jan. 4 at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium. The game is scheduled to feature teams from the Mountain West Conference and the Big 10 Conference.

Woodson follows a line of fellow professional football players to speak at the luncheon. Keynote speakers for the previous three years include tight end Jay Novacek, wide receiver Tim Brown and long snapper Nate Boyer.

The Cowboys picked Woodson in the second round of the 1992 NFL Draft. He played 12 seasons and retired as the Cowboys’ all-time leader in tackles.

Following his playing career, Woodson spent 14 years working with ESPN as an NFL analyst. He regularly appeared on NFL Live, SportsCenter and First Take, and also participated in the network’s coverage of the Super Bowl, NFL Draft and NFL training camps.

Woodson currently works as a partner in ESRP, a commercial real estate company located at the Ford Center at The Star in Frisco.

The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is one of 15 bowl games owned and operated by ESPN Events, a subsidiary of ESPN.
