Happy Birthday to a Legend


(Author’s Note: For those that may not be aware, Coach Hawkins suffered both a heart attack and stroke Wednesday of this week. According to his son, Ray, he is in the hospital under hospice care with no change to his current condition. He is unable to speak or use his right hand, and remains asleep most of the time. The family requests no visitors, but continued prayers)

We at the Lion Wire would like to wish The Legend of Lion Football, and the best college football coach that you never heard of a very happy 91st birthday. Our prayers are with the Hawkins family as well as the Lion Family, as well as the students and supporters of Texas A&M-Commerce. If there were a Mt. Rushmore of Lion football coaches, it would include J.V. Sikes, Eddie Vowell, Colby Carthel, and Ernest Hawkins. We Love You, Coach. Our prayers are with you.

Roar Back Here.....
