Celebration of life for TCU ‘superhero’ Micah Ahern | WFAA

The community turned out in droves to celebrate Micah, and remember the seven year old who inspired so many in his short time with us.

"I invited Micah to be a part of our team because I wanted to teach these young men to think of someone other than themselves," Scholssnagle said, "He ended up teaching us so much more."

The Ahern family created a foundation in Micah's name. The Superhero Micah Foundation will help support cancer research and families dealing with the disease. Donations can be made in person at any Frost Bank location, through mail to Frost Bank, Attn: Carol Camp, 3801 Matlock Rd. Arlington, TX 76015 or online at www.superheromicah.org

Foster Sawyer must ‘roll up his sleeves’ for TCU QB battle | NCAA.com

Kenny Hill laps Sawyer when it comes to real, in-game experience. But according to Gary Patterson, all Sawyer needs to do is focus on maximizing his incredibly natural ability.

"He's got to roll his sleeves up and not worry about it," Patterson said Wednesday during his annual reporting-day news conference. "He has all the throws, he's a lot more athletic than people give him credit for. But to be a leader and be in that position, you've got to roll your sleeves up, you've got to get ready to get hit in the mouth and get back up and come out swinging."

Obviously, the Aggies don’t see things the same way that Hill’s coaches at TCU do. Though their ‘glass houses’ comment seems pretty ridiculous when you consider that Doug Meacham wasn’t at TCU during Pachall’s playing days, and that Trevone Boykin was dismissed from San Antonio immediately following his arrest. Yes, TCU has had problems of their own, but the proof is in the pudding: they handled those two situations differently than Sumlin and co handled Manziel, and the two former Frogs are both experiencing success in their chosen fields. Meanwhile, Johnny is... not.

Last bowl season, ESPN reported that QB Trevone Boykin was arrested and charged with a felony following a bar fight and alleged assault of a police officer. Boykin was suspended for the Alamo Bowl.

Glass houses and all that.

TCU freshman earns gold, silver with USA Basketball | The Star-Telegram

The second-highest rated recruit in TCU history, Amber Ramirez added a gold and silver medal to her trophy case this summer, further cementing her McDonald’s All-American status and potential with the up and coming TCU Women’s Basketball program. Pebley can’t wait to have her new freshman on the court.

“I love coaching women who are confident in who they are,” Pebley said. “There is never such a thing as too much confidence when you back it up with hard work. She deserves the confidence she has, and that type of confidence is contagious.”
