Horned Frogs Take Over Memphis
Though TCU didn’t walk away as Liberty Bowl Champions, the Horned Frogs in attendance certainly had a fantastic time cheering on their team! We even found local Frogs to join in the fun, like the hotel’s amazing piano player, Jon Felix ’84. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate with each of you and were especially excited to be able to welcome our Horned Frogs Connect Liberty Bowl Contest Winner Stephani Biggs '05! We hope that you all will join us for the next game!

LT Nominated for Hall of Fame

Currently, the Pro Football Hall of Fame features two Horned Frogs – Sammy Baugh and Bob Lilly. But that number might rise to three later this year if LaDainian Tomlinson, a current finalist, is inducted. You can help make sure that happens by voting in the NFL’s Hall of Fame! Vote now! (You must vote for 5 nominees)



One of our favorite things to do is brag about our amazing alumni! That’s why we are starting our social media #FrogFriday posts! Each Friday we will highlight a different alumni who has been featured in the media on Facebook and Twitter. Follow us to make sure that you don’t miss out! Has someone you know been featured?

Who are you?
I am a listener.

I listen to my wife so I can be her loudest cheerleader in work, family, and personal growth. I listen to my children so I stay grounded in the authentic human condition. I listen to my colleagues because they are some of the smartest, thoughtful, and pragmatic judges in the country. I listen to my faith which reminds me that in some instances mercy and compassion are necessary, even though others may think a person does not “deserve it.”

I listen to every legal argument, every piece of evidence, and every life story in rendering a decision because individuals deserve a judge that is open-minded, fair, and listens to every word they say. I don’t always have to be the smartest person in the room, but I have to strive to be the most careful listener. Read more...
