Former Longhorns Participate in Youth Clinic

A pair of former Longhorns are doing their part to give back.

Former Texas standouts Jaxon Shipley and David Ash came to Victoria on Saturday to participate in the first annual South Texas Holiday Football Clinic. The event, organized by Refugio native Oscar Lewis’ Taiger Fuel Athletics, provided local athletes grades 6-12 the opportunity to work on their football skills while helping the community at large.

“This is a vision I had to come back and help out my community there in Refugio, who’s still going through the tragedy that happened,” Lewis said at the event. I’m just glad to be able to help them out and throw something like this and see the kids having a good time.”

The clinic was held at the St. Joseph’s Field of Dreams complex and went from 12-4 pm on Saturday. Shipley and Ash were teammates on the Longhorns from 2011-14. Shipley is the younger brother of fellow former Longhorns WR Jordan Shipley, who played three seasons in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
