Midland/Abilene Tailgate Tour Events Up Next|
The Red Raider Club Tailgate Tour heads to Midland on April 25 and Abilene on April 26.
April 12, 2012
Texas Tech head coaches Billy Gillispie and Kristy Curry along with athletics director Kirby Hocutt will be part of the 2012 Red Raider Club Tailgate Tour that travels to Midland on April 25 while Tommy Tuberville will join the group at the Abilene event on April 26. Offensive coordinator Neal Brown and new defensive coordinator Art Kaufman will take Tuberville's place at the Midland event.
"The Tailgate Tour celebrates being a Red Raider," said Amy McBride, Associate Athletics Director/Red Raider Club. "The funds generated from this tour benefit the Red Raider Scholarship Fund which is vital to the success of our student-athletes, but the connections that are built through these events between fans and our staff are equally as valuable. We all look forward to meeting with other Red Raider fans and hope to have big turnouts at each event."
Midland and Abilene are home to two of the largest population areas for Texas Tech alumni in West Texas and the Tailgate Tour is the perfect opportunity for fans to interact with the Red Raiders.
