Video: Sumlin brings in former 9-time All Pro Brian Dawkins for the pre game speech

Whether it's a guest speaker, or someone already in the locker room, every program should identify their pre game hype man and let him loose.

At Texas A&M, Sumlin may have found one of those guys for the Aggies in the form of former nine-time Pro Bowl Safety Brian Dawkins. He was a legend delivering the pre game speeches as a player, so Sumlin had to figure what better person to get in front of his team now?

Teh video above shows Dawkins, who played his college ball at Clemson before a nice NFL career with the Eagles and Broncos, bringing the juice in the Aggies pre game meeting in the team meeting room before taking on Mississippi State. He does a great job of getting some give-and-take with the team before ending it with a "TAKE IT!" sign off.
