NFL Players return home to Jefferson, TX

Posted: Updated:

The small East Texas town of Jefferson has 2100 people, and cranks out talented football players. Two of their most successful NFL stars made their way home this weekend to give back to the community they grew up in.  Bobbie Joe Williams and Montrae Holland held their 4th Annual Jefferson Community Fun Day at the Junior High.  Williams has been in the league 13 years and is fresh off a Super Bowl win with the Baltimore Ravens.  Holland's career spanned over 10 years with 3 teams, including stints with the Saints and the Cowboys.  Both NFL talents enjoy throwing this event every year to help bridge the gap between kids and success.  But it's not just about X's and O's.  They stress you don't have to be an athlete to be successful.
