SC’s Champion pulls prank with Cowboys star Witten for Disney XD show

A special NFL-themed episode of the hit Disney XD series Walk the Prank debuts Saturday, Sept. 2, at 11 a.m. ET with a guest who will be familiar to ESPN viewers. A series for kids and families, Walk the Prank blends scripted comedy with over-the-top hidden camera pranks.

Cari Champion, co-anchor of SportsCenter Coast to Coast (M-F, noon ET, ESPN) and Dallas Cowboys star Jason Witten were invited to join the cast of professional pranksters for the episode. Champion and Witten stage a fake interview to prank a diehard Cowboys fan named Jazmine into believing she is responsible for Witten announcing his retirement on live television.

The episode also includes pranks involving other NFL stars, including Melvin Gordon (Los Angeles Chargers), Josh Norman (Washington Redskins), Jay Ajayi and Jarvis Landry (Miami Dolphins) and Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks).
