Our Texas Longhorns had a relatively successful season, falling to the Oregon Ducks in the Western Conference playoffs. Including that game, we put up 34 touchdowns this season, good for a $8.50 donation to the ALS Societies of Canada and Alberta! Special thanks to our TD scorers: 

Trent Taggert, 14, @Wally

Reginald Sharkstrong, 11, @Sharkstrong

Crowbar Theeks, 7, @DWill

TFC, 4, @Quik

Bolt Vanderhuge, 4, @Kayfabe

Theremin McCracken, 3, @chemicalfire

Drew McPewPewPew, 1, @MMFLEX

Skipper Williams, 1, @ManningTypeAim

 

Stay tuned for the offseason, when I'll randomly draw which Texas player will get to pick our charity for next season!

For season 10, every active member of the Longhorns roster was assigned a number from 1-11 (based on their order on the roster page). @DWill was the first winner, but he has withdrawn in favour of a redraw, so, using Google's random number generator, this year's selection of charity will be made be...

 

@JaysFan26!

 

Please let me know your choice of charity by Tuesday, November 27. Or if you don't wish to make a choice, let me know and I'll redraw.

@JaysFan26 has chosen AbleGamers as the charity. They work to modify video game controllers/computers/consoles/etc. to help people who otherwise wouldn't be able to play video games due to disability or injury. Having a release like gaming can be important in reducing the stress and boredom that people suffering from these conditions go through every day.

@jmoney has chosen The Diabetes Research Institute as our charity for this season. The Diabetes Research Institute leads the world in cure-focused research. As one of the largest and most comprehensive research centers dedicated to curing diabetes, the DRI is aggressively working to develop a biological cure by restoring natural insulin production and normalizing blood sugar levels without imposing other risks. 

 

In the spirit of his players, this season the donation scheme will be $0.20 for every touchdown scored and $0.10 for every interception. So offense and defense will be contributing!

@Snussu has chosen: the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, an organization that educates people about suicide and its prevention, they also save lives and help those affected by it. I chose it since I think suicide prevention is a important thing and serious matter. I personally have a friends that have thought about suicide, but have turned their life around from it.

This year we'll reward the non-splashy plays that lead to success, with donation money earned for tackles and catches!
