Now, Dancing With the Stars has created a launch pad to do other things. I needed this, from a public-image standpoint. I'm done with football. Totally done.

    • Emmitt: Dancing gave me the opportunity to show the world my personality, my determination and my attitude about life. It's been a tremendous ride.

    • Emmitt: For me, winning isn't something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.

    • Emmitt: You don't get into a competition unless you think

    • Emmitt: I've given everything I can possible to the game, on and off the field.
