I am a Dallas-based communications professional who has been following the Texas Longhorns for as long as I can remember. I make it down to Austin whenever I can and I always go see Texas play whenever they are in Dallas. I've been to Cotton Bowls, Big XII Championship games and the 2010 National Championship Game. And, of course, several games at DKR.

My career has allowed me to meet and interview more than 200 pro athletes including Hook'ems such as Vince Young, Michael Huff, Roy Williams, Jamaal Charles, Limas Sweed and others. And, yes, that's me in the photo giving Adrian Peterson a strong Hook'em Horns.

I currently write for Horns Illustrated magazine. My all-time favorite Longhorns are Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.
