20 Years Later: 1992 Cowboys Reunite for Charity

'92 team unites for Emmitt Smith charity



    Hardcore fans of the Dallas Cowboys can probably name everyone on the 1992 Super Bowl championship team, and if they were at the Westin Hotel in Frisco on Friday, they could have seen most of the guys in person.

    The 1992 Cowboys reunited to raise money for the Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities. The Smiths' organization donates to several North Texas charities.

    Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith (of course), Jay Novacek, Nate Newton, Russell Maryland, Daryl Johnston and Jerry Jones showed up. Deion Sanders also walked the red carpet with Eric Dickerson and Marcus Allen. NBC 5's own Drew Pearson made an appearance.

    For the 1992 team, it was a chance to talk about the glory days.

    "Oh, it's great man. They're fun. I remember all the pranks and jokes," Nate Newton said.

    "We'll always have all those underlining and all those memories that no one really realizes," said Tony Casillas.

    "Some of these guys I haven't seen in almost 20 years. But it's like we never left each other," said Russell Maryland.

    Maryland, the Cowboys 1991 draft pick, said he still stays in contact with current Cowboys.

    "DeMarcus, Kenyon Coleman, Jay Ratliff -- I see those guys a lot. And they ask us, 'How was
    it like? What did you do?' You got to love that," Maryland said.

    And even though the former Super Bowl champs admit they're not in playing shape, they still try to stay active.

    "I don't think anyone thinks they're in playing shape. I think the goal is not to look the worst," joked Casillas.
