My big brother, Jimmy, I'm so glad I got to tell you how proud I was of you. When you stepped on a football field, you owned it. You owned Brinkley High School. And because I was your little brother, I felt like that I owned the elementary and junior high school. I will always love you and miss you. Till we meet again...,#flyhightigernumber23youarethebest. Love ya Bubba.
