Coming down from Beaumont, we had a lot of hurricanes with Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. So we know what it feels like to be affected by things like that. So I just wanted to help in any way possible. And I know the city of Beaumont supports me a lot so I just wanted to get them to support the city of Oklahoma City and the state of Oklahoma.
You've got the golf outing coming up. What can you tell us about that?
Bring your golf clubs. It's just a fundraiser for all the schools that don't have shelters. I'm trying to get as many shelters in schools as I possibly can. It's just a fundraiser for that. Just come out there for a couple of hours and try to win. We'll have a couple silent auction items. All the money is just going toward building shelters for schools, schools that don't have them.
It's pretty rare for veterans to stick around like you have. Why did you feel it was so important to be around working out and be with the young guys?
Well, to be honest with you, I was excited about this summer, being able to work on my game. This my first summer without having surgery so I'm just excited about it. I definitely didn't like how I finished the season this past season, or the postseason. I was kind of embarrassed about the way I played. So the only way to go about it is to go back to the drawing board and I'm just treating this summer like I'm a rookie again. I'm working out with the young guys and I'm acting like I don't even have a contract. That's how I'm working.
