This story gets better each time I read or hear it.
I had used some of this in a keys to victory late last football season to point to how Frank Broyles hired coaches, and the charm that sometimes was needed, and displayed. This is a perfect illustration. There are a few more details this time.
One other thing, I covered and wrote feature stories about Brad when he was captain for the OU team in the late 80s. He was team captain for two years after transferring from Lamar.
