Garrett Graf had to have known, didn’t he?

A walk-on offensive lineman simply doesn’t get chosen to be part of a magician’s act out of pure chance. Not in August.

No, Graf was chosen because the Texas coaches wanted something other than a rabbit to be pulled out of magician Robby Bennett’s hat.

“There’s a lot of guys here that deserve this just as much if not more than I do,” Graf told his teammates through tears afterward. “But I promise I won’t let you guys down. I appreciate this more than you can possibly imagine. This has been a childhood dream of mine just to be here, and to experience this, it’s unbelievable.”
