@EmmittSmith22- “congrats to @DeMarcoMurray AWESOME job …we needed this; In order to be the best, you must be consistent for a long time. Hopefully this is the start of things to come.”

Here’s Murray’s tweeter response to Emmitt:

@DeMarcoMurray -  “@EmmittSmith22 appreciate it. Have looked up to you all my life!”

Apparently, Smith talked to Murray after the game and congratulated him. And Murray believes he’ll get a chance to meet Tony Dorsett in person on Tuesday. Apparently, the greats want to welcome the kid to the club properly.
