Nissan Partners With Habitat For Humanity, Heisman Trust For Weekend Of Dallas Area Community Service Activities

DALLAS, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, college football's most outstanding player raises the Heisman Memorial Trophy, a triumphant gesture recognized by anyone involved in the sport. This weekend, six former Heisman winners will get together to lift spirits when they conduct a youth football clinic and help raise the walls of a new Habitat for Humanity home – an act that will change the lives of a local Dallas family forever.

Kicking off the weekend on Friday is the Heisman Youth Football Clinic, an event created last year in collaboration with Nissan, the Heisman Trophy Trust and United Way. This year, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas identified Jubilee Park & Community Center's Afterschool program as an exemplary initiative that would benefit greatly from a football clinic of this kind.

Leading the football clinic will be Heisman trophy winner and former Dallas Cowboy great Roger Staubach (1963, Navy). Joining Staubach in running drills and engaging more than 150 youths will be fellow Heisman winners Billy Sims (1978, Oklahoma), George Rogers (1980, South Carolina) and Ricky Williams (1998, Texas). The Jubilee Park & Community Center is located in an underserved area of southeast Dallas. 

Then on Saturday, Sims, Rogers and Williams will team up with two more Heisman winners – Dallas native Tim Brown (1987, Notre Dame) and former Cowboy Herschel Walker (1982, Georgia) – and a Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity construction crew to help raise the walls of a new home. This unique collaboration grew out of existing relationships between Nissan and its longtime partners Habitat for Humanity and the Heisman Trophy Trust. Together, the three organizations will hammer, saw and raise walls.

"It's an absolute honor to be here with my Heisman brothers and lend a helping hand to those in need of affordable housing," said Brown. "Winning the Heisman was a monumental feat in all our lives, but little can really compare to the feeling of helping others. To have the opportunity to do this in my hometown of Dallas – just miles away from where I grew up – makes it that much more special, and I thank the Heisman Trust, Nissan, Habitat for Humanity and United Way for helping make this a reality."
