When I was in hospital administration, we worked with a marketing firm in the DFW area. My contact there ... somehow we got to talking about college football and I discovered she was Tim Albin's mother-in-law. Tim was on staff at the time. My daughter's high school coach at Amarillo High was Kory Cooper, former AA and national champion volleyball player at Nebraska. Her brother lives a block from me. A good friend of mine, a doctor here, his daughter was a cheerleader at Nebraska. Paul Engler, major benefactor and former regent at UNL, lives here, and is also a major benefactor to my alma mater, West Texas A&M University. I used to work with his new wife. His most recent donation to WTA&M is $1 million per year, in perpetuity.
Amarillo and the Texas panhandle have a volume of Nebraska connections.
