Congratulations and Best Wishes to Coach Art Briles and the Baylor Bears!
Few things are more powerful than a family hug and best wishes during the Christmas season. And it’s in that spirit that the Baylor Alumni Association would like to congratulate the Baylor football team on a landmark 2011 season!
“We want to wish Coach Art Briles and the entire team the very best in the upcoming Alamo Bowl on December 29 against the University of Washington and to let them know how much their hard work is appreciated,” said Jeff Kilgore, executive vice president and CEO of the BAA.
Alumni and other members of the Baylor family couldn’t have been prouder of the team’s success and the accomplishments of many individual players over the course of this 9-3 season. Time and again, the Baylor Bears represented our alma mater in an outstanding manner in a national spotlight and in front of great crowds at Floyd Casey Stadium.
The BAA also wishes to extend a special congratulations to Robert Griffin III for being selected as one of five finalists for the Heisman Trophy and to give him our best wishes for the ceremony in New York City on Saturday, when the winner will be announced. The Baylor family is equally proud of all the teammates who helped make Griffin’s accomplishments possible.
We encourage all Baylor alumni to be in San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl to cheer on our Bears on to another victory. Many thanks to each of you for your continued support of Baylor University and the Baylor Alumni Association!

Tickets for the game can be purchased online at Baylor Football Tickets.
