Put Me In Coach....


Walk-On Goes From the Stands to Kicking For Number 6 Texas Tech.
Here's an uplifting, dream-come-true kind of story to brighten your day. Matt Williams very well may be kicking for Texas Tech this Saturday against Kansas... The fact that the walk-on will be kicking isn't the suprising thing - that happens all the time. It's HOW he got their attention...
During halftime of the game against UMass last month, Williams kicked a 30 yd. field goal to win a free month's rent.... Coach Mike Leach saw it, and since his current kickers have blown six extra points and missed half of their field goals, he took a chance. Leach grabbed Williams out of the stands afterwards, and offered him a spot on the team. After practicing, it appears Williams is now game ready..
Pretty amazing, huh. It just shows you that you shuld always be ready, because you never know when or where your big break will come. This is the greatest out of the stands and into the game in college since this event back in 1986.......
