Here’s the video message and a transcript below:
These are unprecedented and trying times we’re in. We’ve been handed a challenge that none of us expected. We’re dealing with great uncertainty and an opponent that we all must defeat.
To come away successful, it requires discipline, determination, commitment, patience, and perseverance.
The message in response has been clear: we’re in this together and it’s imperative that like any great team, we unite, come together, and wage this fight as one. We will get through this, be stronger, and have brighter days ahead.
I can’t wait for the time when we’re back together, Back on the playing field, and hearing the prideful chants of Texas fight. That day will come again!
But in the meantime, be diligent, be mindful, be prepared, and follow all the guidelines set by medical professionals. From washing your hands to social distancing... Everything matters!
Now more than ever is the time to go 1-0 in everything that you do. Your teammates are counting on you.
From our Longhorn football family to yours, take care of yourselves and those around you — the eyes of Texas are upon you and hook ‘em Horns.
