Calling all LHC TCU Horned Frogs Football Fans… 
Tommy Burrell, Account Executive, from TCU Athletics is ready to answer
questions about the football game on November 29th.
Here is what we do know:
  • Scouts 12 years and under (NCAA rules restrict age) get pre-game on-field activities, a patch, and a jersey.
  • The opponent is West Virginia.
  • The game is the day after Thanksgiving so this may be a fun family event.
  • Not an "official" Longhorn Council event this year but we are working to have something in place for next season.
Please contact Tommy with if you have any questions:
