Earl Campbell came home Wednesday for the annual SporTyler Kickoff Luncheon at UT Tyler.
The Hall of Famer led John Tyler to the state championship in 1973 and he won the Heisman Trophy for Texas in 1977.
"I realized after I won the Heisman that I had something everybody wanted," Campbell told KETK. "They didn't know how I got it. It was done by hard work."
That's what I try to share with youngsters," Campbell continued. "Hopefully they realize that because I used to be just like them."
