college football games for 60 years and later this year it’s being inducted into
the College Football Hall of Fame as an honorary member.
We’re really excited to be flying another inductee London Fletcher, on
today’s flight. And, as a special surprise to London, we brought along one of his
former coaches. Coach Mike Moran: I get to hang around with two Hall of Famers today. London Fletcher: Becoming a College Football Hall of Famer was not something that I even thought about
my didn’t fit the prototypical size at five-foot-nine, I play at a Division three
school, but I’ve always been very driven Not settling; there’s more that you can
accomplish more things that you can achieve. Coach Moran helps shaped my life
in a tremendous way, um, you know at the time that I met him my mother was
struggling with some substance abuse and he was like another father figure he
really instilled discipline in my life and accountability and characteristics at me
that I still hold today. Coach, What’s going on? It’s the house I grew up on, Giddings (street)
