Sports

The Texas Sports Hall of Fame inducted their 2019 class tonight, including NFL household names, Jason Witten and Andre Johnson.  Witten holds the NFL record for the most receptions by a tight end in a single season with 110, in addition to a single game with 18.  The 11-time Pro-Bowler talked about coming out of retirement, to play another season with the Dallas Cowboys.

There’s something inside you, there’s a fire, and for me, the fire was too strong, Jason Witten said.  I had a great experience in the booth, I saw a different perspective, I saw the league, from getting the opportunity to see 31 other teams.
