Texas-sized Honesty

Texas-sized honesty worth every penny Randy Galloway’s hero is Spokane native, former Vandal [and Ferris Saxon] Jeff Robinson.

The only people who think I’m worth this kind of money are my parents and Jerry Jones,’ Robinson told The Denver Post after his new four-year, $4.8 million contract with the $850,000 signing bonus.

I wondered what had motivated Jeff to leave the Rams for Dallas, now it all makes sense. Pretty sweet deal for him.

Besides being a great football player, Jeff was one of the senior starters on the first basketball team my dad ever led to the state championship game at Ferris High School. Jeff hadn’t played much the previous year and wasn’t physically what you’d call a prototypical basketball player, but his leadership and competitive nature really benefited that team. In the end they ended up placing second, but they were definitely a really special group of players.
