Texas A&M football fans rejoice! One of the best parts of every Aggie football season, “The Pulse: Texas A&M Football,” is finally back! You can see the whole episode below.
This episode highlights not only the New Mexico game, but also former player and defensive line coach Terry Price and the indelible impact he had on the program. Coach Price, of course, passed away during the offseason, so this is the first edition of this show that functions as a behind-the-scenes look at the Texas A&M football program since his passing. You can tell from listening to the player interviews just how much coach Price meant to each and every player on the team, not just those in his primary position group of defensive line.
The Aggies have chosen to honor coach Price with not only a decal on the back of their helmets for every game this year, but by putting his initials on the field for home games. Though nothing could fully encapsulate what coach Price meant to this team and this program, this is a great tribute to him and his time with Aggie football, both as a player and a coach. This led to a touching moment, shown in the episode, where the defensive line group gathered around the spot on the field bearing his initials in the pregame. It’s something every Aggie fan should see.
It’s hard to transition from such a heavy and solemn discussion back into football highlights, but the episode does a great job. The Aggie media team is killing it as always, capturing great shots of memorable plays from each game. We are treated to a sideline view of Weigman’s breakout night against the Lobos, watching as he completes deep bomb after deep bomb to Stewart and Thomas.
This is always a great midweek treat between games; and with the episode now here, we’re that much closer to kickoff against the Hurricanes. BTHOMiami!
