Sumlin: 'We kicked the idea of a DJ at practice around for a few years'

Blaring music at practice has been around for years now, but the introduction of a DJ and live music is something that a few schools, including Texas A&M, have decided to do this spring.

According to Kevin Sumlin, him and his staffs have been kicking around the idea of bringing in a live DJ for a few years now.

"We've kicked it around for a couple years actually," he explained. "We kicked it around at Houston, and were actually looking at a place up on the scoreboard where a guy could actually get up there and we could shoot some lights on him up there."

While they didn't put DJ Double R up on the scoreboard last Friday, they did roll out a truck for him and gave him some lights.

"it kind of grew. At first we were just going to have a live DJ, then we got the truck involved, then somehow there were lights inside, then we had tarps and all kinds of stuff going on. I didn't know what it was going to look like by the time that happened, but our staff is always looking for stuff that can help us in recruiting, and just being creative."

If anyone enjoyed it more than the players, it would have been the recruits in attendance who absolutely loved it.

"I don't think that's going to be the last of that, based on the response." Sumlin added.
