Jackie Sherrill Headlines Aggie Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

Corpus Christi (kiii sports)- Former Texas A&M football coach Jackie Sherrill and a host of former players were in Corpus Christi on Thursday night for a special fundraiser for the 12th Man Kickoff Team Foundation.

Sherrill, who won three straight Cotton Bowls during a seven-year stay in College Station, is now spokesperson for this unique organization that raises scholarship funds for all A&M students, not just athletes.

The former coach was joined by Corpus Christi King grad Larry Kelm, who anchored the Aggie defense before spending seven years in the NFL, and Dallas Cowboy legend Tony Dorsett, who won a Heisman Trophy and a National Championship after being recruited to the University of Pittsburgh by then-assistant coach Jackie Sherrill.
