The Ken Paxton campaign announced Thursday the endorsement of former Dallas Cowboy and United States Air Force Academy standout Chad Hennings. One of the most decorated college football players in NCAA history, Chad served his country in the United States Air Force where he flew forty-five successful combat missions flying A-10 jets. Drafted by the Dallas Cowboys as a 27-year-old rookie, he went on to win three Super Bowl Championships with the team.
In a video endorsement recorded for the Paxton campaign, Hennings said, “Texas is a special place to live, to work, and to raise a family and it’s important that we keep it that way. One way we can do that is to make sure we have a winning team of leaders who will serve Team Texas with honor and integrity. That’s why I’m supporting Republican Ken Paxton to be our next Attorney General. Ken is known as a man of strong conservative convictions who’s not
afraid to stand firm for Texas values. Ken’s a man of faith; he’s devoted to his wife and his family. In short, he’s the kind of person you’d be proud to support.” The video can be viewed at www.kenpaxton.com.
Since his retirement from the NFL, Chad himself has found success as an investor and management consultant. A Christian motivational author and speaker, he published “Rules of Engagement: Finding Friendship, Faith, and Strength in a Disconnected World” and “It Takes Commitment.” He has also been a philanthropic leader in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as a member of the board of directors of the Happy Hill Farm Academy, a residential school for at-risk kids, and the establishment of Wingmen Ministries. Chad and his wife, Tammy, have a son, Chase, and a daughter, Brenna. They currently reside in Flower Mound, Texas.
Senator Paxton expressed his appreciation for the endorsement, stating, “Chad Hennings is respected for his career on the football field, but more importantly he is admired for his role as a husband, father, and model citizen. My own father served in the Air Force, so I am particularly grateful for Chad’s service to our nation in the United States Air Force.”
