|Shadana Hurd, former player, now volunteer worker.|
And Alex Allen, another former player who is a volunteer. Don't tell anyone - I think it is a secret - she is Outlaw Annie. See the big sack she's carrying. That's Outlaw Annie apparel. In her other hand she has a sack of food and a soda. Being a mascot takes lots of energy.

|Somebody tell me her name and what her|
volunteer role is. So embarrassing the way
I don't remember important stuff.
|Dr. Tara Morris, team trainer and doctor.|
|That's coach Bobbie with hand in the air. She has noticed|
something that coach Lance hasn't. But you can see
he is getting some vibes.
|Coach Lance joining Bobbie in the raised hands thing, while|
others are taking notice. What do you think is going on?
Figure it out yet? They're dancing! And why dance before a football game? Because the public address guy is testing the equipment and blasting "music" for all to hear and some to enjoy.
|Everybody dance! Come on Lucky, join the party.|
|Serious dancing going on here.|
|Touch the left toe, then the right...|
|Bend that leg back, left first, pull on it, stretch those muscles.|
Actually they've been going through pre-game warm-ups. I don't get many photos of that because I get bored watching people doing exercises. In fact, it is surprising I have these shots of the stretching.
I do have a question. In Austin, the temperature at game time is in the nineties. That's warm. Why would anyone have to "warm up" in that kind of heat?
|Actually there are six officials. The sixth is time keeper and this close to kickoff he|
is up in a control booth.
When an official is heading toward the field, when the scoreboard shows 0-0 with 15:00 minutes to play in the first quarter, you know the game is about to begin.
I always love the countdown to kickoff.
