from Your News Now    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While Friday nights in Texas are about what happens on the gridiron, none of it would be possible without the help of volunteers off of the field. Athletic trainers do everything from stretch to bandage the football team, and deliver much-needed water to the hard-working teams.
