Texas officials are putting a fresh twist on the pre-game speech.
As part of the process, and with weekly prizes on the line, Texas Longhorns Energy is partnering with Mack Brown and the University of Texas to allow Longhorns' fans an opportunity to address the team in a pre-recorded, pre-game speech.
Fans can channel their “inner Mack Brown” and submit their own pre-game speech video on the Monday before each game for a chance to receive a signed game ball from the coach.
To enter the contest, fans must submit a video, no more than three minutes long, to www.TexasLonghornsEnergyZone.com. The top videos will be posted Tuesday on the site for a weekly vote by fans. The most compelling speech will be selected each Friday and provided to the team prior to the game.
“We are asking all of our fans to give us your best shot at your best pre-game speech and put it on the website [www.TexasLonghornsEnergyZone.com],” Brown said in a prepared statement. “The best one (video) will be brought to me, and if it’s good enough, then I’ll take it to the team and use it … and there’s even a possibility, if we like enough, we’ll bring you in and maybe let you do it (in person).”
