Bigger-than-usual Witten weekend3:04 am | June 21, 2013
Jason Witten, welcome home.
As local businesses line their signs and blue signs dot the streets of Elizabethton, the 2012 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year and Bart Starr Award winner returns for a special weekend.
This afternoon, the City of Elizabethton, in partnership with the Elizabethton/Carter County Chamber of Commerce, will honor the Dallas Cowboys All-Pro tight end for his philanthropic and athletic efforts with “Jason Witten Day” at the Covered Bridge Festival main stage at 2 p.m.
Saturday morning the event that began Witten’s well-documented community outreach, the Jason Witten SCORE Foundation Youth Football Camp, returns to Dave Rider Field with a morning and afternoon of outreach to a large number of youth.
