Texas A&M defensive lineman coach Terry Price visits Abilene
ABILENE, TX - The Abilene chapter of the Texas A&M alumni club had a special guest join them on Monday night, straight from College Station.
In his fourth season as an Aggie, Defensive Lineman Coach Terry Price was on hand at the club's "Coach's night" at the Abilene Women's club. Price spoke about the state of the team this offseason, and updates on aspects of the Aggie football program to keep the vast amount of alumni informed.
The team currently is in offseason work outs and satellite camps are hosting camps to prepare for the coming fall season. Coach Price is a part of many of them, but finds time to speak to various A&M alumni organizations to keep them in the loop about what to expect from Aggie football.
During his time at A&M, Coach Price helped freshman Mylles Garrett in 2014 set an SEC record with 11.5 quarterback sacks, and also was a 4 year letterman for the team in the 1980's. He then played 2 seasons in the NFL with the Bears and the Miami Dolphins, before returning to Aggieland to begin his coaching career.
Before the alumni club program on Monday, Price said this year's team has something last year's group didn't have.
"It's just great leadership," said Price. "We finally have some older players on the defensive side of the ball that are going to provide leadership, up front and in the back end. Offensively, you look at our receivers and our quarterback who's a senior, so some really good leadership. That's one thing people don't talk enough about in my opinion. You can have great players, but you have to have great leadership as well and I think we really have that this year."
