The Austin American-Statesman reports that Texas Longhorns senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger is opening up on why he elected to stay to sing “The Eyes of Texas” after the Longhorns fell to the Oklahoma Sooners earlier this month at the Red River Showdown.

In Ehlinger’s words, per the Statesman: “That perspective is that I grew up a Longhorn. I grew up singing ‘The Eyes of Texas’ win, lose or draw. I shared that experience with my family. I shared that experience with my [late] dad, and never once singing that song has anything negative ever crossed my mind. It was always about paying respect to the university and the incredible tradition that the University of Texas has. I also feel a connection with my family and my dad singing that song because I grew up doing that. That’s why it’s important to me. All of my guys and all of my teammates understand that and they know my perspective.”
