Herman is latest well-known Texan to deliver message about health, safety protocols

AUSTIN, Texas – University of Texas football coach Tom Herman has a message for fans and Texans in the fight against COVID-19.

Herman, through the governor’s office, released a public service announcement Monday encouraging Texans to follow effective health and safety protocols, such as washing their hands, social distancing and wearing a mask.

“As Texans, we understand the power of teamwork, whether it’s on or off the field. And right now, we need a team effort to stop COVID-19,” Herman said in the PSA.

Herman is the fourth recognizable Texan to record a PSA for Gov. Greg Abbott’s office. Others have included Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith, baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan and country music legend George Strait.
