Lake Highlands High School graduate Kent Perkins has started all three games for the University of Texas this season, as an offensive lineman. Number 76 told ESPN.com that UT position coach Stacy Searels reminds him so much of Wildcat coach Scott Smith. “He can joke around at times and then when it is time to get serious he can be serious. If you listen to every detail he says you are going to get better,” Perkins said.”

Photographer James D. Smith shared these pics from the game against UCLA, which UT lost 20-16.
