The 100 Club of Heart of Texas welcomed one of the state's coaching legends to speak at the First Responder Fundraising Banquet. On Thursday, former Baylor football coach Grant Teaff served as the keynote speaker.
The sold-out event was held at the Carleen Bright Arboretum. Money was raised for the families of emergency responders from McLennan County who have suffered serious injuries for been killed in the line of duty.
There were door prizes and a silent auction that helped raise money. As a longtime supporter of local law enforcement, Teaff was an ideal choice to speak.
Teaff was the head coach of Baylor for 21 seasons and won a program-record 128 games. His teams won two Southwest Conference titles and finished ranked in the top 25 six times.
In 1974, Teaff was named AFCA Coach of the Year and the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year. Prior to leading the Bears program, he spent time as a head coach at McMurry and Angelo State.
Teaff was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2001. He served as the executive director of the AFCA from 1993-2016.
