Guest Trivia Answer:
Last Saturday night, Davis Webb quarterbacked CAL to a 50-43 win over Texas.  While his father, Matt Webb, was baseball coach at Colleyville Heritage High School, Rice baseball letterman Tyler Henley played for him.  Davis was an elementary school bat boy for the team and he credits Tyler as a “boyhood role model” who had a positive influence on him.  Read more. 

Tyler and fellow Rice Baseball lettermen Kyle Gunderson and Craig Crow have formed a team to compete in Houston’s inaugural D10 competition hosted at Rice on November 5.  D10, a decathlon-style event, is an athletic fundraiser supporting pediatric cancer research at MD Anderson. 

So far, they have raised $1,350 of their team goal of $8,000.  If you are interested in supporting the Rice team known as The Parliament, please click here
