    I know you remind me every time but how do I make a donation to HF?

    I really like the idea that we as a community are giving money to a Horn.
    Thank you for doing it.
    Maybe if enough of us send even the $5.00 suggested you can make another donation

    Wow! A few folks here have sent some donations to HF today so I made another $100 donation to the Derrian Brown fund.

    Thanks to the donors for your kind generosity to Derrian and his family. This is awesome. Love you idoits!

    That’s excellent news! The kid’s a real gamer. Hope he makes a full recovery and we get to see him play someday.

    Kicked in. Proud to be a Longhorn and proud of all you true “horns.” My dad always said, “Don’t ask a man if he is a Texan. If he is, you’ll know. And if he isn’t, there’s no need to embarass him.” Proud to be. God speed, Darrien

    deleted as requested

    Although now, you quoted it

    The guy is dancing, looking good; I want him to come to UT and be a student, a trainer, or a Heisman trophy winner, however far he can progress. My humor, apparently lost, was just that he looks like he already has physical capability to dance and jump around; obviously a great blessing compared to what could have been.

    I’m going to speculate that VYFan’s comment, while certainly ill-advised, was not intentionally milacious. Just a poor attempt at humor.

    Trusting that your indignation indicates I was out of line, I deleted that post. The context here is that the young man who might die, might be brain damaged, might be paralyzed, might never walk, is now, thanks to doctors and prayers, standing up, singing and dancing. We are in the part of the story where we can laugh along with him and his family because he has been delivered past those awful possibilities. Peace!

    Many of those things could have happened, however I did some reading up on the subject and realized that the chances now of lingering consequences or long-term effects are really really small.

    I'm sure he will be advised to give up football, but from the sounds of it, I don't think football was a contributing factor to this issue and as long as it is properly healed, he probably could resume his football career.

    Doctors haven't had to deal with this type of issue and football, so there just isn't enough to go on for them to take a chance. I know the school won't want the liability. Look at what happened to the Maryland program when one of their players died. Not just the poor judgement by the coaches and trainers that contributed to the players death, but also the really bad publicity. It's not worth it.
