I don’t know if they still have this, but I was a part of this organization called the Texas Angels. We worked with the football program in recruiting, so when the guys would be doing their business with the schools they wanted to attend, we would take them and their parents around the school, going to spring game parties. I’ve been to Mack Brown’s old house, I know his wife. And being part of the organization really made me feel at home. I liked football, but I fell in love with football after I became part of the organization. I think my experience wouldn’t have been the same if I hadn’t been a part of Texas Angels. I just really started understanding how big football was to the campus.
