Well, today, Texas freshman Ryan Newsome instead deserves some praise. Newsome, a three-star wide receiver who will join the team this fall, apparently made himself a fan at this past April’s spring game. While most of Texas’ players reportedly didn’t respond to a four-year-old Longhorns supporter yelling “hook’em” before the contest kicked off, Newsome took the time to go over and talk to him for a couple of minutes.It had such an impression on the young boy’s father, he went on Rivals and posted the entire story to the community. Newsome found it today and tweeted it out, telling his followers that it brought him joy.Stuff like this brings me so much joy! This is just the beginning for me!— Ryan Newsome (@NewBoi17) May 24, 2015Very cool. Don’t be surprised if you see a few custom “Newsome” jerseys in the stands this fall.last_img
