The Dallas Cowboys tight end from the team's three Super Bowl wins in the 1990s is the speaker at this year's Boys and Girls Club of Alice Steak and Burger Dinner.
Former Cowboy Jay Novacek is scheduled to speak at the annual fundraiser on Sept. 8 at the Alice K.C. Hall.
The club is currently selling guest tables for the event.
Four-person tables are $300 and eight-person tables are $500 and $750.
The Steak and Burger Dinner, now in its 19th year, is the club's biggest fundraiser of the year.
It’s become a tradition for former Cowboys to speak at the annual dinner, but Boys and Girls Club of Alice executive director Rick Del Bosque said Novacek is the most current Cowboy yet to attend at the event. Randy White was the guest speaker last year. Other speakers have included Mel Renfro, Bob Lilly, Rayfield Wright and others like Ed “To Tall” Jones and Charlie Waters.
Novacek played for the Dallas Cowboys for six season from 1990 to 1996. As a tight end who blocked as well as he could catch, Novacek played a role in the team winning three Super Bowls in four season from 1993 to 1996.
Novacek was originally drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1985. She spent five seasons in St. Louis before being signed by the Cowboys.
He finished his 11-year career with 422 receptions for 4,360 yards and 30 touchdowns.
He was a five-time Pro Bowl selection and was named All-Pro five times.
