Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten may be leaving the Monday Night Football booth to head back on the sidelines, but he remains a popular keynote speaker. He stayed in the Lonestar State for his latest event, speaking at a coding event for Capital One.
With 846 people in attendance at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, the company said they set a Guinness World Record for most people at an artificial intelligence programming lesson. Witten was able to talk about the importance of coding.
“I have four kids, two boys, two little girls. My oldest son’s getting into (coding),” Witten said. “I think for this next generation, that’s gonna be a huge part of where it goes.”
Witten also encouraged the students in attendance to pursue STEAM careers. He said that education in these disciplines can create better problem solvers, innovators and leaders.
After a year away as MNF analyst, Witten is picking up where he left off on a 13-year NFL career. He has spent his entire tenure with the Cowboys and he ranks second in league history in receptions and receiving yards for a tight end.
Witten is an 11-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro. He leads the Cowboys in career receptions, receiving yards, games played and consecutive games played.
Witten has helped Dallas reach the playoffs six times. He is also lauded for his work in the community and was the recipient of the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2012.
