In East Texas, football is king. In this episode, Cindy & Holli explore how this game can not only influence the culture of an area, but also change the trajectory of these high school kids' careers. We'll meet two NFL players who got their start here in East Texas. They will tell us about how football helped them be successful both on and off the field.
Aaron Ross, John Tyler High School, University of Texas, and NFL player and Super Bowl Champion joins us on this episode and shares his story from his time in Tyler through his NFL career. Ross shares his Ups and downs and life lessons and how all of it helped shape the man he is today.
Fred Coleman, proud Tyler native and local sports hero, also talks with Holli and Cindy. Hear how growing up in Tyler and playing football helped mold Fred in more ways than just athletic talent.

We're Holli and Cindy, and we’re the rambling roses, coming to you from the Rose Capital of America, Tyler, Texas. Each month, we’ll have a discussion on some of the little known facts and fun (sometimes quirky) stories that make Tyler a fun place to live, work, and play. This is the first episode, where we'll give you a little background into our history and why we chose Tyler.
