Just how big of a part of the Texas family was Jamail?

Jamail was the lawyer for former Longhorns head coach Mack Brown and the field at Darrell K. Royal Stadium was named after him. It’s safe to say he made a major impact on the program and was a strong influence.

He will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jamail and Longhorns family at this time.
