Fundraising with Dylan Haines
Born in Austin, TX to former UT football star John Haines and UT track star Sandra Haines, I was raised a Texas Longhorn. After walking on the football team in 2012, I learned about the foundation Coach Royal has built at the University of Texas and the legacy he carried not only at the university but with the people who knew him personally. In 2015 myself and the rest of the football team was taken to see the film My All American which featured Freddie Steinmark's remarkable story under Coach Royal. I saw a lot of similarities between Freddie's story and mine. We were both under-recruited safeties who were overlooked but succeeded when given a chance. I also saw a lot of similarities between Coach Royal and my coach at the time, Charlie Strong. Although I never shook Coach Royals hand, I felt like I knew him.
I have had friends and extended family that have suffered from Alzheimer's disease. I want to do everything I can to help provide the funding to the many who have had loved ones suffer from such a terrible disease. I would also love to help carry on Coach Royal's legacy at UT for the remainder of time.
