Texas Tech Football Had Two Very Special Plays in Their Second Spring Game

The best two plays from the Texas tech Football game in Frisco over the weekend were two running plays. Not from Deleon Ward or DeMarcus Felton, but from Andrew and Braden. Two “Fearless Dreams Kids” that were able to score touchdowns for their favorite team thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

According to ESPN, Braden, an 11-year-old from Southlake, Texas, dressed up in a Texas Tech helmet, jersey and pads and got into the game at receiver. He took a handoff on a reverse and cut through the Red Raiders’ defense for a 10-yard touchdown.

Quan Shorts led the way and then lifted Braden into the air as the whole team celebrated around him.

Next up was Andrew, a 12-year-old from Hurst, Texas, into the ballgame. He made his way around the right side dodging the defensive players diving at his feet. Dylan Cantrell and Jonathon Giles leading the way.

In the same ESPN.com article Kliff Kingsbury said, “I knew in warmups that they had something special. They had great attitudes, were running around there fitting in with the guys, so I expected them to play well and they did.”

In addition to getting in the game the two young men spent the day on the field hanging out with Tech players and even caught passes from Kingsbury during warmup and during his post game press conference.

“Let me just say this about them: They’re two of the most polite and respectful young men you could work with,” Kingsbury said. “They did a great job. They were thanking everybody and had great attitudes. Very impressive young men.”

With everything going on in college sports it’s really impressive to have positive stories coming out of the Texas Tech realm.
