Even as he was battling cancer, 14-year-old Nolan Conway of Cypress, TX, never ceased to be a big Texas football fan. Or critic, as it turns out.
While recently recounting his miraculous story of recovery for KHOU-TV in Houston, Conway had this piece of advice for the Longhorns: “Fire Mack Brown!” (Fast-forward to the 1-minute, 28-second mark of the video below.)
It was clearly said in jest … we think. After enduring 29 chemotherapy sessions over the past year — which came after the removal of a tumor that doctors didn’t discover until Conway bumped his head while roughhousing with a friend — it’s certainly not the type of thing you’d expect him to say.
It’s worth pointing out that Conway has already gotten to meet Texans DE J.J. Watt and country music star Jason Aldean. Whether a meeting with Brown would Conway’s tune remains to be seen.
