Jaylon Smith has been making money moves on and off the field. The Dallas Cowboys' 2019 tackle leader has committed himself to creating opportunities for minorities through the Jaylon Smith Minority Entrepreneurship Institute. Smith hopes MEI is an opportunity that will inspire hope, provide capital and actively support minority entrepreneurs.
"I'm committed to passing along the education, mentorship, and opportunities others have provided me by creating the Jaylon Smith MEI," he said.
TODAY's Morgan Radford sat down with Smith at The Common Table to learn more about his legacy.
The original entrepreneurship competition was based in his hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana. This year MEI is coming to The Star in Frisco, at The Omni Hotel. Anyone can apply to be a part of the institute. For more information, visit https://jaylonsmith.com/mei.
