For recruits and their families, a tour of the Texas Longhorns football facilities is part and parcel of the experience, but fans of the program don’t often get an inside look at the place where the players spend so much time.
Fortunately, quarterback guru George Whitfield was in Austin last week following a camp and tweeted out what he saw.
The entrance includes the tribute to Texas safety Freddie Steinmark, who heroically played the 1969 season on a leg stricken by sarcoma. Steinmark had it amputated days after helping to save the “Game of the Century” and tragically passed away in 1971. The movie “My All-American” was based on his incredible story.
Texas A&M may have newer facilities than Texas, but the Aggies don’t have this many national championships to display.
Now well into Year Three, Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong is still working on this process.
We all know Malik Jefferson takes this to heart.
