Gary Patterson wants you to shutout COVID-19

The Frogs’ head ball coach had a message for TCU fans worldwide.

TCU Football vs Ohio State | September 15, 2018
Hey you! Yes, you. Wash your hands. Don’t touch your face. And STAY HOME!

As confirmed cases of Coronavirus mount all over the globe and right here in our backyard, cities and states have used a host of well-known people to try and get the message out that we need to all stay home.

Here is Fort Worth, Mayor Betsy Price turned to one of the most well-known people in Funky Town, TCU Football head coach Gary Patterson, to help share the city’s message of “Y’all Stay Home”, launched... I have no idea. What are days, anyway.

Rife with football metaphors, Coach P talks about his love of a great defense and needing a great game plan against a tough opponent, the Coronavirus. He reminds us that it’s going to “take the whole team” and that we “know the drill: six feet”. He also doesn’t want to see any flags for illegal use of the hands — touching the face.

Lastly, Coach Patterson tells us that all of Texas is on the same team, and that we all need to work together. It’s a great message from a well-respected figure across the state and the country, and hey, if it helps, I am all for it.

Thanks Coach P for doing your part — now the rest of us need to do ours, so that we can hopefully see Gary back where he belongs, roaming the sidelines of Amon G Carter Stadium, this fall.
