I was one of many UT students who were so fortunate to meet Coach Royal in the hall or elevator at Belmont with him starting a great conversation. Thank you Coach! Prayers and thoughts are with the Royal and UT family.

Edith-You and your husband were always so kind to me. Coach Royal transended just being a great coach. He became in some ways like Will Rogers. Things he said were sometimes life-changing if we would look deeper into the meaning. He without a doubt was the greatest psychologist the game ever knew. I transferred into school in 1962 so my original Texas roots came from him. My first game to see was the Mel Renfro Oregon game in 1962 and what I now know happened at halftime and what I saw unfold tells so much about Coach Royal and I have never been the same. He gave me a sideline pass for the 1968 OU game so I could experience that magnifient event. Most of all, I was just one individual of many, but every time I would see him, or pick him up at an airport, he made me feel like I was important. We were all made better for having known him. May his spirit be the standard to guide us for our future leadership. Thank you Lord for sharing him with us.
