A giving day at Cook’s Children’s Hospital

By Garrett McCormick

This time of year is known as a season of giving, and Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Participants, the Brigham Young University Cougars and University of Tulsa Hurricane, made sure to give back in a big way with a visit to Cook’s Children’s Hospital Wednesday afternoon. 

The hospital visit consisted of several players from both Tulsa and BYU as well as the BYU cheer squad and mascot, Cosmo the Cougar. The group interacted with children currently staying in the hospital as a means of raising their spirits during the holiday season.

The "unassuming" to be honored

By Troy Phillips

FORT WORTH, Texas (December 28, 2011) — Salvatore Giunta was as unassuming a guest of honor as a college bowl game can have.

Giunta, in street clothes — a simple, tieless dress shirt covered in a sport coat — sat just right of the podium during Thursday’s Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl Kickoff Luncheon. While other military guests of the bowl were obvious by their active-duty uniforms, Giunta made his way into the Omni Hotel Fort Worth ballroom to the dais virtually unnoticed.

G. J. Kinne, a name to remember

By EJ Holland

If you’re from Texas or follow the state’s high school scene then the name G.J. Kinne should ring a bell.

As a senior at Gilmer back in 2006, Kinne was considered the most prolific high school quarterback in the state, if not the nation, after passing for 3,327 yards and 47 touchdowns with just one interception. He was named  High School All-America and finished his career ranked in Texas high school history in career passing yards (11,695).
