Attorney General Abbott on the Passing of Darrell K. Royal

Coach Darrell Royal not only exemplified the excellence we all have come to expect in Texas, he helped shape it. While the UT football stadium bears his name, Darrell Royal directly helped shape the legacy of greatness that inhabits the program and the university. We will remember him not only on Saturdays in the fall, but year-round for his contribution to our state. From my work with the Darrell K. Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease, I have seen firsthand the incredible passion Darrell and Edith have shown in providing dignity to those affected by the disease. Cecilia and I offer our prayers to the Royals during this difficult time and hold in high regard our memories of a Texas legend.
