Luke Haynes at Parker County Physical Therapy had a special surprise for Jessie at her last therapy session of the year. It was none other than Matt Williams (aka "LynnWood"). The star Texas Tech kicker who won his spot on the team after Coach Leach spotted his talents during a half-time kicking contest.
Weatherford native, Matt is a super nice Christian fellow who was kind enough to drop by to deliver a signed football for Jessie. During the interview with channel 8, Matt explained that his success was owed to God, and he was glad to come by and make Jessie's day special.
We will remember 2008 for a lot of reasons, but this is one more to add to the list. We are so honored. Maybe Tech will offer Jessie a Scholarship in 12 years. :-) You know, kindof a "4 for the price of 3" deal.
I just finished watching the Cotton Bowl, and Tech lost...I'm a little sad. However, as far as I'm concerned, this football team has the most character of any team in the NCAA, ....EVER! I wish that there was a team award for character!! Tech would win it hands down.
Here's a little video of Jessie and Matt hamming it up for the cameras.
Thanks to Luke Haynes, Parker County Physical Therapy, Matt Williams, and Texas Tech for making this a year to remember.
Have a blessed 2009! Cris
