The Texas team visited Yuvaldi and spent time with the soccer team as they prepared to open their home Friday night. Among the Texas squad were CEO Cal McNair, Vice President Hannah McNair, head coach Luffy Smith, and linebacker Christian Kirksey And the Camo Groger Hillalong with sports medicine director Roland Ramirez, who attended nearby Robb Elementary School.
The group has spent the past two days with Uvalde and has provided the soccer team with new Nike uniforms.
