DKR has now met Jesus; no more suffering & whole again. I have some special angels I call on when UT is in a bind, 1st being my son Bobby Binford who cheered for UT in late 70s, then there's 2 more cheerleaders, Jose Pena & Pam McGee, one player Cole Pittman, Coach Landry & now I have the best coach ever in my group of angels. I'll bet Bobby & the other 2 cheerleaders were standing at the River Jordan ringing their cowbells & cheering on "Coach" as he crossed the river to sit at the feet of Jesus. All we can do is Praise God for such a miracle. God bless you Miss Edith & Mack & all of your family; prayers are with you at this time. Can just imagine what all is going on in heaven right now with football talk & golf games; right??? Bet Coach & Cactus & other "cronies" that have gone on before them have already got a golf game going; Hook Em Coach Royal.

I had the good fortune and pleasure of attending UT throughout the 30 game win streak years, but what was even more memorable was the continual class, humility and sincerity that Coach Royal displayed throughout his entire life.
I can remember the time when he participated in a charity golf tournament in Houston after he had retired and my wife had the good fortune to be assigned as the official scorekeeper for his foursome. My father-in-law, a die hard Longhorn fan all of his life, was watching from the sidelines. M wife asked Coach Royal at one point if he would just wave to her dad sometime during the round. Instead, Coach Royal brought him under the ropes, gave him his golf cart to ride in and took a picture with him. My father-in-law thought he had died and gone to heaven.
Did Coach Royal have to do any of this, absolutely not, but it was just his nature of being a quality individual of the highest caliber in everything he did and his consideraton towards just ordinary people. My father-in-law is also gone now, but that picture of him and Coach Royal on that day will always be a treasured family heirloom, but more importantly, and a true testament of the quality person Darrel Royal truly was.
