The passing of two coaches
At Alternate Crop we were sad to hear of the death of two football coaches this week. The first was Darrell K Royal, the legendary University of Texas head coach. I had the pleasure of eating dinner with Royal in his hometown of Hollis, Okla., in 2003.
Berry Tramel and I traveled to Hollis for a story about the high school’s football field being named after him and ran into the coach at J.C.’s Grille before the game. Berry has put the story from 2003 on his blog along with his column about Royal still being an Okie despite having the greatest coaching career in Texas history.
