I just want to start off by saying the guy is a class act! Not to mention the guy is still sharp as a tack. I live in the DFW area and today Randy White came to my place of employment to sign autographs.
I just happen to be at the right place at the right time and ended in the front of the line. I walked up and placed my old school Terps logo down on the table for him to sign and told him “Hey I’m from Maryland and there is no way I am going to have something from the Cowboy’s in my house.” He laughed and I asked him if he still followed the team. He told me about doing fundraising in York with Edsal and how he had high hopes that Edsal could turn things around. I made the comment about keeping the local recruits at Maryland and he basically said he couldn’t agree more. He was basically saying how we need to get things turned around and was hoping that with events unfolding around the area... things looked favorable. The man was extremely nice and even asked if I wanted to get a picture with my phone. Not to mention he put his hand out for a handshake. As I was leaving the table he said something to the effect of (and I am not going to quote him) we need to make the headlines and not just because of our uniforms. Couldn’t agree more!
For a man that has his own show, in the HOF and owns a chain of BBQ joints he is very humble and down to earth. The guy is a legend and even though he played for the Cowboy’s I still respect the man and can’t say enough about how friendly he was.
