Texas Tech’s New Quarterback Can Restore Your Furniture, but Can He Restore Red Raiders?

This Story is About… Tom Fox/Staff Photographer Texas Tech quarterback Nic Shimonek throws during passing drills with the team in Lubbock, Texas, Wednesday, August 2, 2017.

How Dallas Gals Are Tackling Dreaded Alzheimer’s One Powder-Puff Flag at a Time

** In two weeks, 152 young professional gals will take to the field at the Cotton Bowl for a flag-football game. More than 40 guys will coach with equal intensity from the sidelines under the Saturday night lights of the Fair Park stadium. Each will have raised at least $1,250 for the right to play in what’s likely to be sweltering 90-plus evening heat. Why? They want to be part of the 10th annual BvB (formerly Blondes vs. Brunettes) Dallas Powder-Puff Football Game that’s expected to raise $600,000 for four local Alzheimer’s causes.
