Dear Coach, by David Smoak...

Dear Coach,

I've been fortunate enough to have played the game of football in this state, and yes, before you smirk, many years ago (late-70's) at Universal City Randolph.

As a military brat, I played for three high schools in four years with my senior year being in north San Antonio at Randolph High.

I loved the "Ro-Hawks" tradition and history. The program had one coach for nearly three decades, Bob Mickler, Sr.

Smoaky with Earl Campbell, "His Greatest Win in Life"
Friday, 24th August 2012 - 9:52PM
I recently recorded a lengthy interview with a true Texas Legend, the great Tyler Rose, Earl Campbell.

I've been fortunate enough to interview Earl on many occasions, but this is perhaps as upfront and raw as he's ever been about his battle against additions with painkillers and beer.

I hope you enjoy it.
