Former Dallas Cowboy teaming up with Burnet Tackle Football League for June 16 fundraiser

BURNET — The Burnet Tackle Football League will hold a fundraiser June 16 featuring former Dallas Cowboy cornerback Everson Walls.

The event is 3-5 p.m. at Burnet Feed Store BBQ, 2800 U.S 281.

Walls, who won Super Bowl XXV as a member of the New York Giants, will sign autographs for $30 each, which will go to the league, not Walls, organizer Bobby Shirley said.

“He’s willing to help us out,” Shirley said. “He’s not charging us any money. Everson said to set the amount to what we want fans to pay.”

In 2007, Walls donated a kidney to former Cowboys teammate Ron Springs. Since then, he has written a book, “A Gift To Ron,” detailing the experience.

Walls will be selling the book during the autograph session.
