Dalton Santos is my new hero

Dalton Santos is climbing up my list of favorite Longhorns faster than Daje can run the 40. A week after losing both his grandfather and grandmother, he is saying things like this:

"It was just that mentality of being the nastiest dude you can be out there."

"If they want me to go kick the ball, that will be my role. I will go kick the ball, and hit somebody."

"And I knew at that point, if it came knocking here, [Texas] is where I wanted to be. With them dudes. And I wanted to know that I could step out on that field and shed blood, sweat, and tears with them."

Blood, sweat, and tears. This guy was all in from the get go. During a year where Mack Brown is preaching toughness, this guy might as well be the poster child. What a champ.

Be excellent to each other.
